I have heard of unofficial issues from Akrotiri and Dhekelia. Do they really exist?

Have a look at the topic I wrote in June, but it does not include unofficial issues, such as those by breakaway Anguilla:

The Worldwide Usage of the Effigy of Queen Elizabeth II (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,10156.0.html)



The two posts in that topic that will most interest you are:

1] Circulation coins with Elizabeth II on the obverse (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,10156.msg68696.html#msg68696)

2] Non-circulation collector coins with Elizabeth II on the obverse (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,10156.msg68699.html#msg68699)

They're on Cyprus, UK military bases - don't understand their inclusion?
And there are a few other token issues from supposed British possessions...............
