Cuba, 1 Peso 1985 Bosque FAO CN Unc

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!

Cuba, Don Quijote 1 Peso

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 realise that tilting or running at a windmill will get us no where, except perhaps a broken back or neck. In 1982 Cuba issued a special commemorative One Peso coin for Don Quijote and Sancho Panza. 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 I think our price of is quite attractive. Don’t tilt at windmills, do buy this coin as a reminder to keep your head about you.
