    I was looking through a list of islands by size, and thinking that many of them have their own coinage. If you like, please post coins for the various islands of the world. A few of mine:

    Nova Scotia, Halfpenny token

    Seychelles, Half Rupee, 1939

    St. Helena, Halfpenny token, 1821 (here's a pic of a better one)

    Please share your own! Island nations which share an island like Haiti and Papua New Guinea count too.

    If you think about it there are actually A LOT of island countries with their own coins. Even larger nations like Great Britain, Japan, Philippines and Indonesia. So I could be here all day posting different pictures, but here are just a few. Prince Edward Island, Azores, Guadeloupe, Japan and Danish West Indies. 1871 prince edward island 1 cent.jpg 1880 azores 5 reis.jpg 1903 guadeloupe 50 centimes.jpg 1903 japan 1 yen.jpg 1907 danish west indies 20 cents.jpg
