50 Cents - Edward VII (1904-1909)

In an act of 1863 Newfoundland turned to decimal currency and adopted the Spanish dollar as its unit. This made the British shilling equivalent to 24 cents and the sixpence to 12 cents.



The obverse was designed and engraved by G.W. De Saulles (DES below bust) and is identical to that of the Canadian issues.


The reverse was designed by W.H.J. Blakemore.
