Other Description:

Straits Settlement 1 Cents Coin

Historic Context:

The Straits Settlement coin was lost on site after the prisoners had left Adam Park and most likely after the surrender in 1945 as it is dated 1943. However it is a testimony to the British determination to take back the Settlements that they continued minting these coins despite the fall of Singapore in 1942.
