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



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

1] Circulation coins with Elizabeth II on the obverse

2] Non-circulation collector coins with Elizabeth II on the obverse
Visit the website of The Royal Mint Museum.

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