  • Hi Daniel --

    Straits Settlement was a British colony located on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula in Thailand. They started minting British coins in 1845. Queen Victoria started her reign in 1837.

    The 1801 date of your coin betrays its crooked origins. It is a fake. Value is about zero.

    You can see some info about genuine Straits coins here:
