Cuban Coins -- Fun to collect and Own

Coins - World | Bret@Idaho

Since getting into the hobby/business of coins, I have long found interest and pleasure in collecting coins from Cuba.    I had fun going to coin shows and finding various coins from dealer's tables.    Often times I found nice coins, low mintage, in excellent condition --- and paid a small price.     Ebay would not allow the sale of Cuban coins, so most dealers would sell them for the price of silver melt (I mostly focused on silver Cuban coins, and avoided the copper-nickel).

Now, with the thawing of relations the market for Cuban coins has bounced back.

Does anyone else collect Cuban coins?   I belong to a Facebook page that is about Cuban numismatics and have gained information and knowledge there.


Happy hunting.

I haven't really collected Cuban coinage, but I did inherit my Grandpa's World coin collect which included some from Cuba.

The only Cuban things I like have the words madura or rumba attached to them. Never seen a Cuban coin.

I like to collect any silver coins from the Americas. I'm including Cuba in that now. Any Spanish type toned silver is the best for me. Thanks!!

Never got into Cuban coins. Maybe because I had to hide under my school desk during the cold war. That should tell you about how old I am. We lived in fear during the trouble's. Now at lest I can see what they look like. If you have pictures it would be great. If not don't worry about it. Thanks for the blog I will be looking for these coins from now on. I hope there nice!

I have collected some Cuban coins. I have even managed to sell some Cuban coin on ebay. Of course you have to carefully word your listing but a lot of the collectors no what lingo to look for. Cuba has issued some beautiful coins but the bulk of my collecting is from Germany and colonial Portugal.
