Trinidad & Tobago, 1 dollar, 1995 (FAO)

I’ve not seen one of these before.

Trinidad & Tobago, 1 dollar, 1995 (KM #61)


This is the largest Trinidad & Tobago coin I have, both in size and in value, yet it is only worth 15.8 cents USD. The exact mintage is unreported.

This coin is one of many FAO coins out there. The FAO is a food aid agency organized by the UN in 1945 with the goal of supporting food supply development in nations around the world. Most nations of the world are members of this agency. Many nations have issued FAO themed coins over the last few decades, from places as diverse as Brazil, Italy, Turkey, and Fiji. It would make an interesting collection… just FAO coins.
