Unofficial Coinage

Odd & Curious Money | A.J.

did you know that you can buy coins from the Principality of Sealand? did you even know it exists? well, welcome to the world of Micro nations.
Micro Nations are small areas of land that someone declared a nation. some examples are as follows:
-The Principality of Sealand
-the Gay and Lesbian Kingdom
-Conch Republic
some of these micronations even have coins.
Sealand uses the seland dollar, and you can buy them at www.sealandgov.org (Pegged to the US dollar)
the Conch uses the Conch Dollar, (pegged to the UAE dollar)

Liberland uses theLiberland Merit, (Cryptocurrency)
and Mollosia uses the Valora. (Picked onto a Cookie Dough Standard)
id love to see if anyone here has some Micronational Money.


Sounds very interesting

Love micro coinage. I have a 1929 Lundy Half Puffin which was issued by millionaire Martin Coles Harman. He bought his own island and issued his own coinage , even featuring himself on the obverse. Great Britain didn't care for it, however, and quickly put a stop to it. Sealand is interesting as well. in reality it's an abandoned oil rig.

I remember reading about that somewhere.....

I used to have a One Buck from Buck Island, B.V.I. But not anymore. They were made in 1961 and are still seen on Ebay.

Some of these "countries" make their money by striking various coins.
