Pitcairn Islands Gold Coins
Brief Pitcairn Islands History
Pitcairn Island was discovered in 1767 by the British and settled in 1790 by the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions. Pitcairn was the first Pacific island to become a British colony (in 1838) and today remains the last vestige of that empire in the South Pacific. Outmigration, primarily to New Zealand, has thinned the population from a peak of 233 in 1937 to less than 50 today.
Pitcairn Islands Coins
Although Pitcairn Island has used New Zealand currency since 1967, it has also issued its own commemorative coins since 1988, including gold coins.
