Many sophisticated collectors have in recent months been stunned by the spate of hi-tech coloured 50 pence coins appearing on the market, depicting exotic penguins of the Falkland jungles and such like.

Meanwhile, a similar miracle has been taking place unnoticed in St Kitts & Nevis. Time was, the Victorians had to spend hours enamelling their coins. Now they can be produced on demand. This coin comes in two amazing versions: coloured and not coloured. It also has not one theme but two: boats, AND a bird! Not only that, it boasts surely one of the world's most stunning firsts - the reverse legend includes an ampersand. Yes, an ampersand!


Furthermore, it has a British connection, since the islands are part of the Commonwealth. Why has nobody mentioned this coin? I have posted it here to make people want to buy it. If you are bored and have lots of spare money but don't know what to spend it on, it's a great idea for you. If you do buy any of these coins, please consider making an unboxing video and posting it on YouTube. It would surely be a numismatic sensation and might just win you the 2018 Nobel Prize for Advancements in Numismatics.  8)

 :) You knave! You didn't mention that, as is stated clearly on the edge, this rare piece of legal tendership that all collectors want to pay crazy prices for contains 99.99% of one ounce of pure silver, which immediately identifies it as produced by either the Canadian national mint or the Hogwarts mint at Leavesden, the latter being more likely.

This means that this unsurpassed piece of piecemanship is very attractive also for silver speculators, suffering from falling prices. I hear St. Kitts wages are now negative, so this wonderful piece of Post-colonialist Britishness must be cheaper than its weight in silver! Go get it before it goes on sale for the second or third time and everybody already has one. :P

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


It is part of EC8 silver and gold collection. Scottsdale Mint.


We're just having some innocent (and healthy) merriment, Big_M. Don't take offence. Or defence.

Scottsdale Mint indeed suddenly seems to have contracts with a lot of different islands. Although most of these coins at least depict a theme that is in some way related to the island, the coins are not well made. No proper designs, ugly fonts, no relief, just basic graphic designs lasered into the dies. As they are being sold for little over face value I understand they have to keep the costs low but this is just utter crap. The colour doesn't make them look any better either.
