What do you think?
I also picked-up this 1951 Australian Florin and a 1949 Southern Rhodesia 1/2 Crown. Both are UNC. The 1949 Southern Rhodesia piece is made after they converted from silver to copper-nickel. It is quite large (32 mm) and has George VI on the obverse with shield reverse.
Please post some more photos people.
Thanks for letting me share.
Nice pickups. Florin especially.
My gosh, you could put that in the trunk of your car and use it for a spare! It was said that some people complained about the silver dollar being too big.

Thanks 'BRandM'. These areas do have a very long and interesting history behind them. History is one of the things that makes coin and banknote collecting so fun and rewarding.
10 ROUBLES 1977(l), 33.3000 g., 0.9000 Silver 0.9635 oz. ASW, 39 mm
Here my newest world coin 1927 10c Bu Straits Settlement
I couldn't agree more. That's a big part of the appeal of collecting for me as well.
Sweet! I love the frosted tone on this one. I don't usually collect coins from Britain or her colonies, but they are interesting. Thanks for posting.
Beautiful Jello! My girlfriend/fiance is a Punjabi (Indian) girl from Malaysia, which is of course part of what used to be called the Straits Settlements, and I have loved coins from there even before I met her heh. I have a beautiful 1935 silver 5 cents, I hope to get some more high grade Straits Settlements coins eventually.... it is one of my favorite British Commonwealths to collect.
Here is my 1935 Silver 5 cents, along with a Victorian 1891 10 Cents. The first three pics are all of the same coin. I also have a beauty 1941 Malaya 10 cents... but only room for 4 pics, and I don't feel like starting another post unless you guys want to see that and some other Straits Settlements coins.....
