One of the many series that Cuba has issued over the years is a series of one Peso coins depicting different Castles. The one on offer is for Castle Morro and it was struck in 1984. It is low mintage and in Uncirculated condition. Unfortunately, we cannot sell them to any American collectors, as it is illegal at this time to export them to America. You have the Castle on one side with a key below the castle, the other side has the arms of Cuba and the denomination. Not an easy coin to find, it is now over 30 years old and you won’t find them in America.
This is a fantastic One Peso coin from Cuba. It was issued in 1982 and it honours the American writer Ernest Hemingway on his getting a Nobel Prize for literature in 1952. Hemingway kept a house in Cuba for years and it was one of his favourite homes. Today it looks like America and Cuba might make up their differences and one day Americans might even be allowed to collect Cuban coins. This coin shows a scene from his novel The Old Man and the Sea, with a fisherman fishing from a very small boat. The coin is One Peso, it is struck in cupronickel and is in Uncirculated condition.
