2005 Bahamas Five Cents

Dreaming of those warm Bahamas beaches after that 'Polar Vortex' plunged this piece of the world into a deep freeze. Well finding this coin will not get you there but at least it can give you a direction to go. That direction is to the equator where it is still hot.


This 5 cents has a nice pineapple on the back that look much more friendly than any pineapple I had to cut. In the Commonwealth of The Bahamas the pineapple is a traditional crop and some towns even hold pineapple festivals. Those delicious Caribbean dishes and drinks that are pineapple filled would be perfect at a resort in some tropical place, not in NYC on icy sidewalks.

The lack of mintage data for the last few years of Bahamian coins is sad but normal. Most countries that are small or less populated often do not publish mintage rates because it may disrupt the economy. Rarity is only known by people who use or collect coins often. Word of mouth is the best way to find out if one year is rarer than any other year.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / Bahamas
Year: 2005
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.05 in VF (Very-Fine)
