Trinidad 10c silver 1982.jpg

Instead of the hibiscus flower, the reverse of the collector silver 10 cents coin featured a hummingbird.

This is a different design from the one that appeared on the circulation one cent coin.

Trinidad 1c 1984.jpg


A similar set to the 1982 collector set was issued in 1983 and 1984.

Apart from the $10, the designs were the same as in 1982, but without the special legend.

The special designs created for the lower denominations of the 1982 set were never used on their circulation counterparts.

Trinidad and Tobago is a great country to collect.  Like many Franklin Mint issues, proof and specimen uncirculated sets are distinct in that the higher denomination coins are silver in the proof set and copper-nickel in the specimen set.  Specimen sets tend to have far lower mintages and often sell for a nice sum, when you can find them.   :)
