Alderney Gold Coins

Brief Alderney History
Alderney is part of the Channel Islands, being the third largest after Jersey and Guernsey. It is a dependency of the Island of Guernsey, is ruled directly by the British Crown, and is not subject to the British Parliament.
The Channel Islands, for those who do not know are in the English Channel (La Manche), and are much closer to France than to England.
It was evacuated during the German occupation of France in 1940, but was re-occupied by the islanders in 1945.

Alderney's First Coins
Alderney issued its own coins for the first time only in 1989, although it has only issued special commemorative and collector coins rather than circulating coins. Its gold coins are all proof issues. We sometimes have in stock a few Alderney coins. The mintage figures tend to be quite low, although perhaps this is to expected with a population of under 2,500.

Alderney Gold Coins
In the short time for which Alderney had been issuing gold coins, it has made a variety of denominations. These appear to split into two series. Large format two and five pound coins have been issued as gold proof versions of cupro-nickel commemorative crown sized coins. Another series starts with a small ten pound coin and progresses through twenty five, fifty and hundred pound coins.
