Cuban, Souvenir Peso (1965-1985) Type 2
In 1985 Richard struck a Cuban Souvenir Peso to commemorate the 1965 Bay of Pigs Issue, which by chance he also had a hand in striking. This second type has a larger more handsome head than the first type and the beading much closer to the rim of the piece. It's a crownsized coin struck in Prooflike cupronickel, it was made by the Tower Mint some 32 years ago. As far as we know, this company is the only one in the world with a supply of this piece. One day these will be in great demand, once Americans are allowed to deal with and collect Cuban material.
