Feeling happy with this new find for my collection, at a MS62 grade. High grades Kg Edward VII 50cts series are hard to come by.

 

The 1907H "H" represents Heaton & Sons Mint, and the other without "H" is the Royal Mint.

 

Straits Settlements Kg Edward VII
Denomination : 50cts
Year : 1907H
Composition : Silver .900 fine
Mintage : 2,666,667 (Mintage includes both "H" and non "H" mintage)

Grade - MS62 (Population 1 pc. graded by PCGS / 4 pcs by NGC)

As always, gorgeous. Do you happen to know the mintage ratio between the mints?

Beautiful coin.

Does the "H" have the same meaning on Canadian large cents?

The "H" does have the same link to the Canadian coinage. Coins between the years 1858 - 1907 were minted in England either by the Royal Mint of London or the Heaton Mint in Birmingham with the "H" letter mint-mark.
