Currencies and StampsThere are unfortunately plenty of gaps in this page below - as I have been unable to find a variety of images for currency and stamps from the nations within the British Empire and from within the Commonwealth today where the British Monarch is still Head of State.  Any help would be gratefully appreciated - please send an Email with any images you may have to fatheranthony@ntlworld.com together with your details/web address so you can be acknowledged as providing assistance!

This section deals exclusively with currencies and stamps of the Empire , and where the Monarch is featured on the notes or coins today.  Most of these images have been located from http://www.kcshop.com/ whose copyright they are.
