    Today I want to share something that I think is kind of neat. There is a gentleman in Lancaster Texas who has a business called.. The Puerto Rico Mint.
    He creates items related to Puerto Rico such as people and places. He also has old items that are related such as tokens, coins and labels.
    I have purchased a few items from him over the years such as the items I want to share today.

    These are coupons with historical figures from PR. The colors and designs are really neat.

    These are merchandise Vouchers..
    Check them out! :wideyed:

    Those are great.
    Question, what is the significance of the 16 above the 1/100 on the reverse?

    I am Padilla but I'm not related to the former governor..

    Padilla is a known surname in many latin countries and also the Philippines.
    It originated in Spain.

    Padilla is a Spanish geographical or locational surname, originating from a number of different villages of that name, from the Spanish padilla, meaning "saucepan" or "bread pan," which in turn derived from the Latin patella, a diminutive of patina, or "shallow dish." In this sense, the word was used topographically to describe a village built in a gentle depression.

    Padilla is the 57th most common Hispanic surname.

    I misplaced the COA but I believe it is number 16 of 100 made.

    It was worth a WAG. Keep those Coke bottles. I do not think they are available any longer. Padilla may be a common name, however, we have the one uncommon within the common community of Padilla's with error coin expertise and we thank you for being a CT Member. Can't wait to see what you have planned for 45,000.

    In the past I have purchased items from this "company". He always throws an extra item or two in with your purchase. Never had a bad experience.
