Cuba, Che Guevara Signature Three Note Set

When Fidel Castro and his supporters overthrew the Batista regime in Cuba, there was a need to introduce new banknotes. Initially, the old Batista designs were used until a completely new series could be organised. Che Guevara was appointed President of the National Bank of Cuba in 1959, much to the surprise of many. One of the stories told, supposedly by Che himself, was that when Fidel Castro asked if there was an economist in the room, Che raised his hand and was duly appointed President of the Bank. Che had misheard Castro, thinking he had been asking for a communist. He subsequently signed Cuban banknotes with his nickname and nom de guerre, Che. This set of three Cuban notes dated 1960 all feature Che’s facsimilie signature. We offer this set here in Very Fine condition.

Cuba 1 Peso Man in Boat

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.
