Vanuatu (New Hebrides), 100 Francs
The exotic South Pacific Island Nation of the New Hebrides is now called Vanuatu. It got
its independence from the Anglo-French commission that ran it in 1980. Before then, only
one crown was ever issued and that was the 100 Francs of 1966. It is struck in 835 fine Silver
and the coins on offer are in Uncirculated condition.
If you are collecting a crown of each country, then you must have this one for your collection.
It has the head of French Liberty on one side and a native carved sceptre on the other
side. A large silver crown that is very difficult to get, in fact we have only 35 pieces and that
is after a year of looking for them.
