COINS & BANKNOTES OF ISLAND NATIONS

Most of these small island nations have a relatively small population, so they need fewer coins. This results in many hard to find coins due to their low mintage.

ANDAMAN AND NICOBAR ISLANDS COIN SET  Wholesale prices available to dealers

Andaman and Nicobar Islands 2011 coin set
Native wildlife is featured on this set of seven unofficial 2011 dated coins from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The territory, located in the Indian Ocean, consists of 572 islands, of which just 38 are permanently inhabited. Denmark, Austria and Britain all attempted to colonize the islands. Britain eventually turned it into a penal colony. Japan occupied it in World War II. They are now a Union Territory of India. Over the years the indigenous inhabitants have been almost completely wiped out by disease, land encroachments and punitive military expeditions. Most of the few hundred that remain maintain a steadfast independence, refusing all outside contact. The bi-metallic 20 Rupees pictures a Nautilus. The bi-metallic 10 Rupees depicts a Dugong. An Indian Wild Boar is on the 5 Rupees. A Coconut Crab is shown on the 2 Rupees. The 1 Rupee has a Kuhl’s Flying Gecko. A Stork-billed Kingfisher is on the 50 Paisa and the Anadman clubtail butterfly is on the 25 Paise. The arms of the islands is on the obverse of each coin. Only 10,000 sets were minted.

She was launched in 1869, the same year the Suez Canal was opened.  Though steam ships had much higher fuel costs, they proved more reliable, had lower insurance costs, and had a substantially shorter journey by using the Suez Canal, which was not suitable for sailing ships. The Cutty Sark sailed just eight tea trips from China before being moved to the Australia wool trade, then to other cargos. By 1922 she was the last clipper ship operating in the world.  Today she is a popular museum ship in permanent dry dock in Greenwich, England.

BRITISH INDIAN OCEAN TERRITORY SEA LIFE COINS IN TITANIUM & COPPER-NICKEL

British Indian Ocean Territory 2 Pounds 2018 Blue Titanium Manta RayBritish Indian Ocean Territory 2 Pounds 2018 cupro-nickel Manta RayBritish Indian Ocean Territory 2 Pounds 2018 Golden Brown Titanium Coconut CrabBritish Indian Ocean Territory 2 Pounds 2018 cupro-nickel Coconut CrabBritish Indian Ocean Territory common obverse features Queen Elizabeth
The British Indian Ocean Territory consists of the 55 islands of the Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean. It is the home of some of the world’s cleanest oceans and has a vast array of marine wildlife.  In 2018 the British Indian Ocean Territory featured two giant species, the Manta Ray and the Coconut Crab, on coins struck in both titanium and copper-nickel.  The Manta Ray is a gentle giant of the ocean, reaching as much as 23 feet (7 meters) across and weighing almost 3000 pounds (1350 kg.).   They are harmless to humans and feed on microscopic zooplankton. The coin shows a Manta Ray skimming above the coral covered ocean floor followed by a group of Remoras. The Coconut Crab is the world’s largest Land Arthropod and an incredibly impressive looking crab.  It can weigh over 9 pound (4kg.) and its leg span can reach over 3 feet (1 meter).  It can live over 60 years. They are found throughout Indonesia, Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific. Although their name suggests that they primarily feed on Coconuts, this is not the case and coconuts make up as small proportion of their diet. They can however be found climbing the Coconut Palms and occasionally using a broken coconut shells as protection. Recent footage has shown a coconut crab hunting a Sea bird! Once they get hold of the bird, their powerful claws easily break the bird’s wings and then more crabs that smell the kill will descend on the defenseless bird! Coconut crabs have been extensively hunted on islands where there is a human population as their flesh is considered both a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. When the tables are turned and they manage to pinch a human, they can cause considerable pain and will not release their grip for a long time. One technique used to free someone from their powerful grip is to tickle their underbelly!  The coin shows two large coconut crabs, one on the ground feasting on the flesh of a coconut and the other climbing a coconut palm.  The 2018 dated coins are denominated as 2 Pounds and come in two metals.  The Titanium coins are 36.1mm, weigh just 10 grams (about a third of an ounce), have a mintage of 7,500 pieces each and come in a capsule in a presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity. The Manta Ray titanium coin is dark blue, while the Coconut Crab is struck in golden-brown titanium.  Because of the way the metal reacts and technical difficulty in striking titanium, the color of each coin is slightly different.  The copper-nickel coins are 38.6mm, weigh 28.28 grams and have a mintage of 10,000 each.  Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse of all the coins.

British Virgin Islands 1 Dollar 2004 Francis Drake & Golden Hind KM265Sir Francis Drake set off in December of 1577 aboard The Golden Hind what would be an epic three-year around the world voyage.  The voyage was intended for both exploration and attacking of Spanish ships and ports.  His raids on Spanish ships were so successful that the Queen Elizabeth's share of half of the treasure was more than enough to pay off England's national debt and still have a substantial sum left over.  The name Golden Hind refers to the female Red Deer that was on the crest of one of the patrons of the voyage: Sir Christopher Hatton.  This 2004 Dollar of the British Virgin Islands depicts Drake, his ship and a map of the British Virgin Islands. The map also includes St. John, which is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands!  Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse.  The copper-nickel coin is 38.6mm in diameter.

BEAUTIFUL BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS UNA AND THE LION DOLLARS

British Virgin Is Copper Nickel. 1 Dollar 2019 Una and the lion,British Virgin Is. 1 Dollar 2019 Una and the lion, 1 troy ounce .999 silver coin
Una and the Lion is one of the most beautiful, popular and expensive of all British coins.  The gold 5 Pound coin was struck for the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1839. One recently sold for $188,667.  The design, created by sculptor William Wyon, was based on Edmund Spenser’s poem Faerie Queene which tells the tale of Princess Una after St. George had slayed the dragon and rescued her. During the course of her travels, Una met a lion who was so mesmerized by her beauty he became her companion and protector.  On the coin Una was modeled after 19-year old Queen Victoria.  The Lion is a traditional symbol of Britain. Thus the design is an analogy for Victoria leading Britain.  The legend ‘DIEU ET MON DROIT’ meaning ‘God on my Right’ is the motto of the British monarchy.  The British Virgin Islands recreated this beautiful design, initially on a silver dollar, and now on a copper-nickel dollar to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria.  The obverse features Queen Elizabeth, the great, great granddaughter of Queen Victoria.  Both are 38.6mm and denominated 1 Dollar.  The silver version has a frosted Brilliant Uncirculated finish and contains 1 troy once of .999 fine silver and a mintage of 50,000 pieces..   The copper nickel version has a mintage of just 10,000 pieces.  They are attractive coins at affordable prices.

From 1994 until 2021 Cuba had unusual monetary system two different coin and currency systems.  The coins are not inter-changeable, but both are called Pesos.  Most Cubans are paid in the regular Cuban Pesos, which can be used to buy basic necessities.  Tourists, government employees and Cubans with overseas family that sent them hard currency used the Convertible Pesos. The Convertible Peso could be used to buy goods and services that were deemed to be "luxuries".  In reality that meant just about everything other than rice and beans.  This encouraged overseas family to send money to Cuba, yet allowed the government to keep all the hard currency.  We offer both sets of these distinct Cuban coins.  The regular Cuban Peso coins includes the aluminum 1, 2, 5, 20 Centavos, brass plated steel 1 and nickel clad steel 3 Pesos.  The centavo coins feature a star the reverse.
