In 1894 the Queen Victoria side face portrait issue of the postage stamps for Trinidad were discontinued. In 1896 a new design was issued of a seated Britannia. This issue had ten values from a Halfpenny to 1 Pound. The lower values of the set, the Halfpenny to 6 Pence were all printed in dull purple with the value printed in green (halfpenny), rose (1 Penny), blue (2 Pence Halfpenny), orange (4 Pence), mauve (5 Pence) and black (6 Pence) respectively. In 1900 the 1 Penny was re-issued in dull-purple and the value formerly with a round o in "ONE PENNY" (shown here) was changed to an oval shape. The later issue in MUH condition is now of considerable value.
