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 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!

CUBA 1 PESO 1984 CASTLES EL MORRO CN

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 34 years old and you won’t find them in America.

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.
