OK, world coin collectors, or anyone else with an interest....
In another thread, elheron had speculated there could be at least two dozen "issuing authorities" (countries, or former soverign entities) which have issued coins with palm trees.
I THINK THERE ARE MORE!!
For those with an interest, I suggest we bite off manageable pieces of the world in alphabetical order, hence the first five letters of the alphabet.
- List your issuing authorities and the specific coin
- Great if you can provide a photo, but not required.
- If you are a botanist and want to challenge another poster's palm tree, that's fine, but you must correctly identify the plant, or you will be banished forever,and asked to pay a fine.
- Please update the number of issuing authorities starting from the previous post.
- Changes in the rules are permitted if accompanied by a suitable bribe.
I will start:
1. Bahrain. I no longer have the photo or the coin, but my notes say I had the 1969 F.A.O. 250 fils issue, KM#7, and sold it to a collector in Bahrain.
2. Belgian Congo. 50 Centimes 1955. KM #2 under Zaire/Belgian Congo (photo)
3. Ceylon. Many coins, but I will post a photo of the 1 cent coin from 1945.
4. Comoros. 1964 2 Francs KM#5 (photo)
5. Dominican Republic. 1955 1 Centavo. KM#17 (photo)
