Information about legend: EDWARD · VIII · KING · EMPEROR

EDWARD · VIII · KING · EMPEROR (1936 - 1936)

This legend was displayed on only one Fiji coin, the one penny of 1936, during the reign of King Edward VIII in his capacity as King of Fiji. It refers to his role as King of the United Kingdom and all of its dominions, colonies and territories, and Emperor of India. Owing to his short reign (he abdicated later the same year), there were no further issues using this legend.
