Cuban Gold Coins

Brief Cuban History
Cuba was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492, and settled by Diego Velasquez in the early 16th century. Cuba remained under Spain until 1898 except for a brief period of British control in 1762 to 1763. Cubans struggled for many years for independence. After 1895 the US lent military assistance to the rebels, and independence was finally achieved in 1902. In 1952 Fulgencio Batista seized power and established a dictatorship. This was overthrown by Fidel Castro on January 1st 1959, and a communist collective system was installed by 1962. This regime was, for many years, supported by the USSR, causing opposition and tension with the nearby USA, which imposed sanctions in 1961.

Cuban Gold Coins
Cuba issued gold coins in 1915 and 1916, but no more were issued until about 1977, since when a large number of commemorative designs have been issued.

The 1915-1916 series of coins feature Cuban hero José Marti on the obverse with the inscription:-
16.718 G 1916 900M (in the case of a 1916 ten pesos)
The coat of arms of Cuba appears on the reverse, with the inscription:-
DIEZ PESOS (again in the case of a ten pesos).

1977 Carlos Manuel de Cespedes
The reverse of this issue has a facing portrait of Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, with his name and the inscription
1968 1977
