ISLAND COUNTRIES

Ginny Bourke – The Coins of South Georgia


Wikipedia has a webpage listing Island Countries and is quoted as follows:  This is a list of island countries. An island is a land mass (smaller than a continent) that is surrounded by water.  Many island countries are spread over an archipelago, as is the case with the Federated States of Micronesia and the Philippines (which consists of thousands of islands). Others consist of a single island, such as Nauru, or part of an island, such as Haiti. Although Australia is designated as a continent, it is often referred to as an island, as it has no land borders.  Some declared island countries are not universally recognized as politically independent, such as Northern Cyprus. Some states, such as Taiwan, officially claim to hold continental territories but are de facto limited to control over islands.  Wikipedia goes on to list 49 States; 47 Dependencies and other Notable Regions; 50 Former Nations; and 13 Former colonies, possessions, protectorates and territories.  What items do you have to share from this area of world numismatics?  You’re encouraged to bring any material to show.  Ginny will provide the program as named above.  We’ll have a raffle.  Invite a friend.

APRIL QUIZ by Bob Fritsch


We are finally getting some decent weather here in the Granite State.  The glacier has disappeared from the front yard although my neighbor’s is still receding.  Spring is definitely in the air!

Island countries comprise this month’s theme.  This month’s quiz concerns Fantasy Polymer Banknotes and some of the island “nations” that issue them.  You can look online at the many dealers in these notes, or do Google.


1.  These islands feature cats on their notes and are otherwise known as the Desolation Islands.


2.  King Franck I created this virtual monarchy in 1988.  He is an accomplished artist and the banknotes of his kingdom are wonderful works of art.


3.  This tobacco producer is located in the Ervescent Sea and has been around for 8 centuries and maybe even longer, according to the Blissdane Naïve Historical Society.


4.  The VOC exploited this island from 1640 to 1796 when it was ceded to the British.  The fantasy notes are a riot of color.
