Fantasy sets for Native American tribes
« on: August 24, 2012, 06:45:18 PM »
We have a new candidate to list now. :(

Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel Indians. :o

From Joel's website:

The Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel Indians (formerly known as the Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueno Mission Indians) issued their first coins in 2012. The seven coin set includes the 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 Cents, 1 and bimetallic 5 Dollars. The designs depict the tribe’s heritage on one side and the tribal symbol, an oak tree, on the other. The tribe of about 300 members attempted to establish a resort and casino on its remote reservation in Northern San Diego County. However the Casino has lost large sums of money, as there are larger and fancier casinos that are easier to get to. The planned resort hotel was never built, which discouraged gamblers from making the long drive to Santa Ysabel. In July 2012 the Tribe made an unprecedented attempt to declare the Casino bankrupt. Indian Tribes are normally not allowed to declare bankruptcy as they are considered sovereign nations within the United States. It is an attractive set of Uncirculated coins from a financially troubled tribe.

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

Just wait until someone argues that the Indian nations have the right to issue coins and they end up in SCWC after all. Financially troubled indeed. Trading dignity for cheap commercialism seems to be the answer.

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

Here's even worse example: Coins of La Posta Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the La Posta Reservation. >:(





Los Coyotes Indians:

The Los Coyotes Indians are a tribe of less than 300 member. Only 78 of those members live on its 25,000 acre (10,100 hectares) reservation located in the remote hills northeast of San Diego.

The fantasy series of "La Posta Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the La Posta Reservation" was minted on order of the German company Numiscom at the private mint South Kingze in Guangzhou, China.
