Top: Cayman Islands, $5, 1978.  25th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation.

Bottom: Cayman Islands, $5, 1980.  Standard collector issue (in sets only).

The reverse of both coins showed the standard collector design, as seen in the prior post.

In 1983 Jamaica issued a collector set of its coinage with an altered legend. The legend commemorated the country's 21st anniversary of independence. These coins did not circulate.

Turks and Caicos Islands, 1 crown, 1986.





Turks and Caicos Islands, 1 crown, 1969.



A collector coin, commemorating nothing, was issued in 1969 and 1986. Their designs were exactly the same, except that the year appeared on the reverse in the first case and on the obverse in the second case. Additionally, these are the only two coins of that territory to have the legend TURKS & CAICOS ISLANDS and not the usual TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS .

In the decades after the second world war, a number of communist semi- and crypto-communist states changed their names on the coin, leaving the design unaffected. As one example, the (frozen date) 1953/55 series of Yugoslavia is in the name of the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia, while the 1963 series is in the name of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. There are examples from other countries.

The change is significant, as the US government swallowed the propaganda that communist is socialist. Even today, in American mythology socialist equates communist, which is bovine excrement. I am not aware of the actual reason for the change. My preferred theory is that it has to do with a Marxist dogma that, as communism took over, the state would wither away, worker's brotherhood would arrange everything, money would disappear and a worker's paradise would ensue. See this post, paras 10 to 14.

From 1968 to 1977 on the coins of Brunei, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah's title included the Roman numeral 'I', meaning that he was the first sultan of Brunei to bear his name. That continued into 1977.





However, later in 1977, and from that time onward, the numeral "I" was excluded from his title. Two slightly different circulation sets were therefore issued in 1977.
