British Malaya 1943 20 cents 50% Silver coin Are you looking for a Gem Brilliant Uncirculated coin of this mintage? You be the judge of this one! Issued by: Commissioners of Currency Malaya Minted: 1943 This coin was minted in England right in the middle of the Second World War when the Japanese occupied Malaya but the Allies began to feel confident of winning the war. The coins could only be put into circulation after the British regained control of Singapore. Japanese forces in Malaya surrendered on 12 September 1945 in Singapore which then became a British colony again and the coins could be issued for circulation. This coin has been kept ever since and never circulated. Now, you can own this piece of Singapore's colonial history! From the time when coins were still made of silver. After this series, cupronickel completely replaced silver in coins issued for use in British Malaya, which included Singapore.
