Unit: 25 cents
Just a quick post for today from the large Numismatics Collection. This coin comes from the Caribbean island of Jamaica which gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1962 but remains a commonwealth realm much like Canada or Australia with the queen as the monarch. The coin itself is from 1996 and is worth 0.25 JMD (Jamaican Dollar), making it the quarter of Jamaica. The reverse features Marcus Garvey as part of a National Heroes series. This particular coin was minted between 1995 and 2003 and is made of copper plated steel.
