The Coins of British
of 1/12 Annas (1862-1901)
The following is my best attempt to
provide a complete list of the 1/12 Annas of Victoria 1862-1901.
In general, the list provided in Standard Catalog of
World Coins (Krause) is excellent. The proofs, patterns
and restrikes are not listed below. Bust A was used on all
coins 1862-1876. Starting in 1877 Bust A was used on all
Bombay issues and Bust B on all Calcutta issues. The 1874-1876
coins from both mints used Bust A and the diameter is used
to determine the mint.
The coin was minted at all three mints
as indicated in the listings. The diameter of the coin indicates
the mint on the 1862 issues.
c - Calcutta
b - Bombay
m - Madras
