Greenland, 50 øre, 1926.

GRØNLANDS STYRELSE  (correct order) is something like Greenland Administration.  Styrelse is cognate with German words starting with Steuer- (control/manage/direct).

Malaya, 20 cents, 1943.

The coins of Malaya reference the "COMMISSIONERS OF CURRENCY". This beautiful specimen belongs to our forum member Harry.

Cuba, 5 centavos, 1981.  Cuban landsnail.

This coin states that it is issued by the National Institute of Tourism (INTUR). These coins were issued to tourists from the Soviet Bloc / Warsaw Pact countries.

In fact, all tourists were supposed to use them. It was a second, separate money circuit that was semi-convertible. The first circuit money (Cuban pesos) was not convertible. The intention was to keep your average Cuban from owning something convertible. The real effect was to put a premium on the second circuit coins and notes, proving the inferiority of the first circuit currency. China had a similar second currency in the seventies, but it consisted of banknotes only.

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

As of 2014, Libya will add the words "Central Bank of Libya" to the coins. The new designs are due out soon.
