Different years, same special design
« on: February 18, 2018, 09:09:49 PM »


Trinidad, $1, 1969.  FAO.





Trinidad, $1, 1979.  FAO.



It was not unusual for a FAO-themed design to be issued for a few consecutive years, but not with a 10 year gap.

Belize, $5, 1995.  QUEEN ELIZABETH THE QUEEN MOTHER - SUMMER IN BALMORAL CASTLE - 1945.







Two years later, the design was relegated to a $1 coin. Why?

Very dishonest of Gibraltar to trick people like this, specifically targeting people with poor memories.

Recent satellite pictures prove that Gibraltar has at most a population of 1,632 - not the 30,000 claimed. Perhaps it should change its name to Fibraltar. At the very least, it deserves to be thrown out of the EU.
