An issue to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Independence from the UK. It shows a nice rendition of the large island and the flagship "Nina" which is known to have been one of the ships used by Columbus in the 1492 first voyage. Christopher Columbus was the first European to see Jamaica, claiming the island for Spain after landing there in 1494 on his second voyage to the Americas. His probable landing point was Dry Harbor, called Discovery Bay, and St. Ann's Bay was named "Saint Gloria" by Columbus, as the first sighting of the land. He later returned in 1503; however, he was shipwrecked and he and his crew were forced to live on Jamaica for a year while waiting to be rescued. [Wikipedia]. 30,000 were minted in UNC and 20k more in proof.
