Scottsdale Mint’s third journey through its Eastern Caribbean 8 continues with the fourth issue of 2020. This time its the turn of Saint Kitts and Nevis, previously represented by a Pelican in various poses, but now with something completely new. Now, this small Caribbean nation is hardly the location of great military campaigns, but that’s not to say their haven’t been some noted battles as a part of bigger conflicts.
Britain and France hardly ever go a century without a bit of barney, and in the 1780’s, it was against the backdrop of the American War of Independence. A seige by overwhelming forces, a heroic but doomed resistance, followed by the politicians resetting everything. The coin depicts the battle, with a good look at period weapons and uniforms. It actually makes a nice change for the series to go this route once in a while and it appears to be a good looking coin.
