Straits Settlements 1/4 Cent coin In its day, an expatriate from the mother-country England working as a top-level executive in the Straits Settlements colony of Singapore earned the princely sum of 200 Straits Settlements dollars a month! Minted in 1901. Now 117 years old. Truly an antique. It took 400 of these coins just to make 1 dollar, and 4000 to make 10 dollars, in 1901 Singapore! Own a piece of Victoriana from Singapore when it was a part of the Straits Settlements. Own a piece of Singapore's history from pre-independence times. Obverse: Queen Victoria Reverse: Face Value Bronze 2.33 grams Diameter: 18.0 mm Thickness: 1 mm Orientation: Medal alignment ↑↑ Why is this coin worth S$120.00? It looks alot better than these which are selling at €150 (=S$244) & US$336.90 (=S$441) -- https://www.numiscorner.com/products/straits-settlements-1-4-cent-1901-km-14-au55-58-bronze-18-2-30 -- https://www.ebay.com/p/Straits-Settlements-1-4-Cent-1901/101998051 See my other coins available to you -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/germany-1950-1-pfennig-unc-stuttgart-mint-f-mintmark-00088-155092609 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/germany-1950-5-pfennig-unc-stuttgart-mint-f-mintmark-00089-155092841 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/japan-1964-1000-yen-sterling-silver-coin-olympics-mount-fuji-00090-155155120 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/malaya-british-borneo-1961-1-cent-coin-00092-155359501 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/malaya-british-borneo-1961-5-cents-coin-00093-155359929 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/malaya-british-borneo-1961-10-cents-coin-00094-155360502 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/malaya-british-borneo-1961-20-cents-coin-00095-155360868 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/malaya-british-borneo-1961-50-cents-coin-00096-155361454 -- https://sg.carousell.com/p/british-malaya-1943-20-cents-coin-00097-155467861 Tag Singapore currency bronze copper metal fractional coin 1/4 quater cent demonetized Queen Victoria Victoriana antique British Empire colony Straits Settlements
