        One Penny 1946, Coin from British West Africa (demonetised 1968)
        CoinOne Penny 1946

        The 掉盘British West African Pound掉盘 was the currency of 掉盘British West Africa掉盘, a group of British colonies, protectorates and mandate territories - Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana (originally Gold Coast) and Gambia. From 1907 till 1911 the reverse of the coins showed the legend 掉盘NIGERIA - BRITISH WEST AFRICA掉盘, then from 1912 the word NIGERIA was discontinued.

        The 掉盘British West African Pound掉盘 was equal to the (pre-decimal) Pound Sterling and was similarly subdivided into 20 shillings, each of 12 pence. In other words, the 掉盘penny掉盘 was thus equal to 1/12th of a shilling or 1/240th of a pound (i.e., 240 of these coins made one pound).

        Unlike its Imperial counterpart - the British Penny - the 掉盘British West African Penny had a central hole掉盘 which made the two coins incompatible; this was done to make sure that colonial money does not get exported to Great Britain to be used there, leaving the colonies with no cash.

        For most of the history of the denomination, the coins were made of 掉盘CuproNickel (copper-nickel)掉盘 - like this one; this changed to bronze in 1952.

        After decolonisation, the coins were replaced by the various new countries as they introduced their own independent currencies:
        - Nigeria introduced the Nigerian Pound in 1958
        - Ghana introduced in Ghanaian Pound in 1958
        - British Cameroon (on unification with Cameroon) adopted the Central African CFA Franc in 1961
        - Sierra Leone introduced the 掉盘Leone in 1964
        - Gambia introduced the Gambian Pound in 1965

        In some places, 掉盘British West African coins掉盘 circulated in parallel with the new coinage until 掉盘1968掉盘. Thus, 掉盘one penny coins issued in 1946 would have circulated for up to 22 years掉盘 depending on location.
