Bahamas, Prince Charles $10.00
This large silver $10.00 was issued by the Bahamas in 1978 for the 5th Anniversary of their
Independence. But rather than put the Queen on the coin, they put Prince Charles. It is in Proof condition,
but they have toned a bit over the past 41 years, as silver tends to do. It weighs 45.36 grams of
500 fine Silver, which works out to about 3/4 of an ounce of pure Silver.
As far as we can remember, this is the first coin to portray Prince Charles, and as he is going to be our
next King, it might be a good way to start a collection of his coins.
