General Description Dominion of Newfoundland, a dominion of the British Empire (1907–1949), fully self-governing from its establishment in 1907 until its total economic collapse in 1935. They voted, in 1949, to join confederation in the neighbouring Dominion of Canada as that country's tenth province.
Newfoundland made the decision to introduce its own decimal coinage in 1863, but the first coins were not issued until 1865, with 1, 5, 10 and 20 cent pieces, as well as $2.00 gold pieces being issued that year. The coins were all struck in England until 1913, sometimes at Royal mint London without a mint mark, and sometimes at the Heaton mint with a small H mint mark. No coins were made from 1914 to 1916, and when coinage resumed in 1917 many of the coins were then minted at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa with with a small C mint mark on them.
