1874 Newfoundland 50 Cents. This coin was issued over a period of 30 years between 1870 and 1900. They were struck in England but never in huge numbers, just according to demand, in the embryonic Canadian province of Newfoundland. In this year, 1874, just 80,000 were struck at the Royal Mint in London and 28,000 at the Heaton mint in Birmingham. The coin is an impressive piece of silver, 30mm diameter and weighing 11.4g. It’s not an exceptionally attractive coin, rather dull in appearance, but its main attraction is the rarity value.
