Straits Settlements

The word "rare" in this article doesn't necessary mean "rare" in numismatic. Non-collectors like to use the word to search for favourite coins that collectors are looking for.

I will try to share the price, mintage and pictures of the scarce coins for quarter cent, half cent, 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents and 1 dollar Straits Settlements coins that had been auction by International Auctioneers. I will try to find coins with a third party grading in this list to make sure that the coins in the auction are genuine. Proof and Specimen coins will be excluded in this list.

Even though low mintage is one aspect that make the coin rare, sometimes the coins in that particular year had been recalled and melted for some reasons like rising cost of silver or shortage of copper for ammunition. You can see high mintage for that year but you cannot easily find that coin in people collection.

They're a lot of Fake Straits Settlements coins out there and if you have any of these coins in your collection, the chances that they're fakes coins are very high. If you're buying silver coins via internet, make sure you know How to check for Fake Straits Settlements Coins by just looking at pictures. They're many "Made in China" Counterfeit coins online.
