British West Africa / Queen Victoria

British West Africa - Queen Victoria (13 January 1850 - 22 January 1901)

British West Africa or the British West African Settlements constituted during two periods (17 October 1821 until its first dissolution on 13 January 1850 and again 19 February 1866 till its final demise on 24 November 1888) an administrative entity under a governor-in-chief (comparable in rank to a Governor-general), an office vested in the governor of Sierra Leone (at Freetown). During that time, no coinage for the colony was issued.

However, the West African Currency Board issued currency for British West Africa between 1907 and 1958.
