[font:Arial Black]During the short reign of Edward VIII -- 20 January 1936 until his abdication on 11 December 1936 -- no colonial coins were issued bearing his portrait. However several coins were issued by the states of Kutch and Jodphur that bore his name in Indian -script.[/font]

Tough question but interesting one. Here are the ones I got

British North Borneo

Southern Rhodesia

Gold Coast

British West Africa

South Africa

Sierra Leone

East Africa

 

I'm probably missing a few and I didn't count the India Princely States because I wasn't sure if they were a proper colony. I also didn't count any of the British Protectorates since there is a distinction between protectorate and colony. Again it's a tough question for someone who doesn't do much in World Coins. Good luck to all contestants this week.
