Boy the Mauritius Dodo coin brings back memories.  I was a lad when I ordered an uncirculated one directly from Spink & Sons (across the pond), got a tailless manx cat Island of Man coin from them also.  Gave the brother-in-law the Dodo coin, brother-in-law left the sister and the coin went with him. :'(  Gotta get another one.

I thought you were going to say you were around when the dodos were.  :D

They gave you a free cat too. I hope it didn't suffocate in that packaging during the long journey.

Hello gerard
I will give you an inside information.:
The current governor of the BoM is not so much interested in the coins, the coinage and the numismatics of Mauritius.
And also
He's not so much interested in the brandnew coin museum.

It's a pity --but it is like that.

You mean Mr Harvesh Seegolam? The average term of a BoM governor is something like 5½ years. A coin museum should survive that, shouldn't it?

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

Unfortunately I do not live in Mauritius.
But I'm very close to the coin museum and the Blue Penny museum. and other museums.

YES ... Me and others try to raise the public interest in the coin museum.

Someone who was there.?
