Pirate Treasure!


Did you know there were gold and silver bank notes?

Yes,they exist.I saw them at the COINEX-Mumbai.They are official legal tender of Antigua And Barbuda.

There are 30 0f these notes which form part of the collection called The Saga of Treasure Ships and Pirates.

They are:

1. Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge
2. Bartholomew Roberts’s Royal Fortune

4. Stede Bonnet’s Sloop Royal James
5. Benito de Soto and the Black Joke
