The mint did say possibly Caribbean?

Mmmm. Maybe not.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Lovely coin die "model" but I am guessing as are the rest.

Let's play with some history. Morris Garages (MG) was owned by Lord Nuffield who was, I am told, a coin collector. Given his money a coin die (well a working part of a die being designed) is probable as part of his collection. So perhaps the Nuffield Foundation may be the place to approach.


That sounds very plausible and interesting.
Thanks to all of you for your head scratching and thoughts.



The ship design was originally intended for the half-crown of Edward VIII in 1937; it went through various stages in the transfer to the halfpenny.

I do notice though the prow of the ship is very different.
Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.
