This crownsized Cuba 1 Peso was issued in 1995 for the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Usually a one peso coin will be rather small, but this case it is a full 38mm. More importantly it comes in the original bubble package. The current catalogue price is $17.00 about £13.50. You have a group of faces with a dove of peace in the background. The obverse has the Cuban coat of arms. This piece was part of the Royal Mint United Nations programme and most collectors have never seen this coin. If you live in America it is sill illegal for you to import it. Nice Uncirculated examples in the bright yellow bubble pack and at only £8.50, it is quite a good deal…
Perhaps one of the most famous literary figures was Hidalgo Don Quijote, the famous knight who charged a windmill. Of course from this, we all now realize that tilting or running at a windmill will get us nowhere, except perhaps a broken back or neck. In 1982 Cuba issued a special commemorative One Peso coin for Don Quijote. It shows the Knight on horseback charging at a windmill, lance at the ready. The mintage of this Uncirculated 1 Peso is only 7,000 coins, so we think our price is quite attractive. Don’t tilt at windmills, do buy this coin as a reminder to keep your head about you.
This Silver Cuban 1 Pesos was issued in 1980 and celebrates the Flora of Cuba. On one side you have the coat of arms of Cuba and on the other a Mariposa flower and the date 1980. This is one of the Cuban coins more difficult to get and we are fortunate to have a nice group in Uncirculated condition at this attractive price, which makes them even better.
The famous American writer is featured on this One Peso of Cuba issued in 1982. Ernest Hemingway is best known for his stories such as The Old Man and the Sea. He spent a lot of time in Cuba and they have taken him as one of their own. You have the facing portrait of Hemingway with the dates 1898-1964, the other side has the arms of Cuba. These coins are in Uncirculated condition and are very popular with the literary set. It has a beautiful portrait of Hemingway on it.
This cupronickel One Peso was issued by Cuba in 1983 for the Winter Olympics held in Sarajevo. It should be noted that the mintage is a very small 3,000 pieces, which in today’s collecting terms can almost be called rare. The coins have two ice hockey players facing off and the obverse has the arms of Cuba. We think this whole series is much under-appreciated and one day that might well change.
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 cupronickel One Peso was issued by Cuba in 1985 as part of the United Nations FAO programme. The mintage is just 5,000 and the current Krause catalogue price is $10.00(£6.45) which we think is too low for such a low mintage. You have a modern rendition of a rainforest on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side. The coin is in Uncirculated condition and now some 33 years old. We think this coin is being sold too cheaply, but in the spirit of giving you a bargain, here we are!
From the island nation of Cuba in the Caribbean, we offer the 1985 Iguana Peso. Struck in Uncirculated cupronickel this is one of the more difficult of the early issues to find. You have the head and shoulders of an Iguana on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side.
This One Peso coin was issued by Cuba in 1995 for the FAO or Food for All series of the United Nations. You have oxen on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side. This One Peso is struck in cupronickel and the mintage is just 5,684 pieces. They are in Uncirculated condition but have mellowed a little over the past 26 years. Supplies are very limited and it would make a wonderful gift for a farmer.
This Cuban One Peso coin was issued in 1984, some 33 years ago. It was part of the Transportation series and shows a horse-drawn carriage, which is known as La Volanta in Spanish. The mintage of this important coin is just 5,000 examples which is very very small for any series. But for Cuban coins, once the embargo is lifted in America, this may turn out to be a key coin.
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.
This cupronickel One Peso coin was issued by Cuba in 1981, it was part of the Plant and Flora series. This particular coin depicts the Azahar flower. What I find most amazing is the mintage. According to Krause the mintage is just 3,000 coins, which in any case would be very low indeed. The coins are large and thick and in Uncirculated condition and with a mintage of just 3,000 coins, rather difficult to get. While our small supply lasts, you can have this Cuban 1 Peso for just £7.95.
This Danish silver crown was issued in the 1960’s when a crownsized piece was 10 Kroner; today similar sized pieces have a face value of 200 Kroner. It just goes to show what inflation will do to money. It is struck in 800 fine Silver and is in Uncirculated condition. It was struck in 1968 for the wedding of Princess Benedikte.
