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 is 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!
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 that is more difficult to get and we are forunate to
have a nice group in Uncirculated condition at this attractive price, which makes them

there are six green cards each holding a different Proof commemorative 2 Real coin. The
reverse of each has an outline map of Brazil, the denomination and the World Cup.
We have never seen this set before nor has anyone we've shown it to. Therefore we must assume
that it is Scarce and difficult to find. What a wonderful gift this would make for someone really
into Football. We have just 25 sets and when they are gone, there will be no more.
Brazil went through a lot of changes in the 1980’s and that included its coinage. We offer a
most unusual group of Brazilian coins, two years, two coinages, two different sizes. From
1986 we offer the 1, 5, 10 & 20 Centavos all very small. From 1987 and 1988 we offer three
of the new coins, but now they are very large and called Cruzados, 1, 5, & 10.
An interesting set of seven coins now 32 years old.
