This is the most common (5,987 struck) of this series of Provisional Government Coinage of 1967. This is when the island tried, unsuccessfully, to separate from the union with St. Kitts & Nevis imposed by the British. By 1969 the British landed paratroopers and policemen on the island to restore order. By 1976 Anguilla was declared a self-governing dependent territory. The unusual history of how these special issues came about has finally been revealed in Krause publications "World Coin News" for Jan 2015.

Anguilla was seceding from its ill-advised union with St. Kitts & Nevis,not from the British Commonwealth.


The reverse photo is actually upside down.


This coin is listed in Krause's 'Unusual World Coins'.


Anguilla is one British Commonwealth country that I haven't got a coin from,but I do have a British postal order that was issued there though.
