One year type coin! ASW= 0.3434 of an ounce. This coin was issued for use in the former British colony of Mauritius. This Indian Ocean island was the possesion of several nations from the time of its discovery in 1507, until its independence from Great Britain in 1968. Mauritius also holds the distinction of being the only known habitat of the now extinct Dodo bird.
A bust of King George V appears on the obverse, while a coat of arms appear on the reverse. This is a well preserved specimen of this hard to acquire coin. Almost Uncirculated condition. KM#46a.
