Counter stamped on Mexico 5 Peso KM#467
The so-called Anguilla Liberty Dollar was initiated as a scam by Scott Newhall, then editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. Newhall, on his own, counterstamped between 10 000 and 15 000 mixed coins (mostly silver) with the mark ANGUILLA LIBERTY DOLLAR and JULY 11 1967 before darkening the stamp with ink. Trying to sell his idea to the new provisional government, Newhall failed to have his coin recognized legally and later sold the coins to a coin dealer who kept going with the story to earn money. With the success of these so-called dollars in the coin collectors community, Anguila later issued similar numismatic products in 1968, 1969 and 1970. (Numista).
