Mint: The coin was most likely minted in the United Kingdom wit only 100,000 minted.

Condition: The coin is graded by ANACS as EF (Extremely Fine) 45 and comes in a plastic holder so labeled. It is great looking with nice eye appeal. The details of the coin are all well preserved with wear commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin is better than the photos suggest. The coin has scratches, minor bag marks, wear to the high points especially where the fez sits on the head, and wear to the king's cheek. Be that as it may, it is a very nice coin in great condition for the type and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
