Cabinda fantasies
« on: March 08, 2011, 03:32:26 PM »
After Redonda Island, we now have 'Republic of Cabinda'.. :o ;D

This 1 Real coin dated 2011 commemorates 65 years of UNICEF.

Have you seen a weirder design than this?  ::)

Guess it makes sense to say that Cabinda has a "disputed" status. But those pieces sure are bogus. :)

It is really unrealistic and royally wrong to take what's on a coin for reality. ;D

From that link I found a piece I remember seeing before....

http://spb.molotok.ru/item1494827979_kabinda_7_5_eskudo_2005_fao.html

The design mentions the 60th anniversary of the FAO (Food and Agricular Organisation).

In 2006 I mentioned these to the FAO man in Rome - he told me....

>>>>
With regard to the coin issued by Cabinda, this is the first that I have heard of such a coin. I have checked a number of web sites following you message and have found a picture of this coin. I must stress that FAO has not at any time sanctioned such a coin nor are we associated with it in any way. If you have the name of the mint that struck the coin I would be interested in hearing it.
<<<<

((I have used bold above just as he did in his message to me.))

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

I found no trace of any institution called "Banco de Cabinda", except these fantasies. AFAIK the Banco de Cabinda is as much fantasy.

The funny thing, what do you get to see when you click on that "Cabinda National Bank" link in the numismaster.com article? Right, this page: http://cabinda.hostingwithu.com/CNB.htm Now look at the photos over there ... ;D

Now this 5 Reais coin commemorates 35th anniversary of Cabinda's independence. ::) And what does it show? An AK-47 rifle! :o ;D

The only problem with those 'officially' issued Cabindan coins will be that they still will be called 'Illegal' issues since Cabinda is not recognized as a country by UN.
