Falkland Islands Silver Coins

The Falkland Islands are an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean, 300 miles from the coast of Argentina. There are two main islands, East and West Falkland, and 776 smaller islands. A British Overseas Territory, the Falklanders are also considered British citizens. Since its discovery in 1600, various settlements were founded, failed or were driven off by competing powers. France, Britain, Spain, and Argentina has all had settlements on the main islands, with the British taking control in 1833.

Argentina invaded the islands in 1982, leading to a two-month war with Britain that resulted in the expulsion of the Argentine Army. Argentina still maintains a claim to the islands, which they call Islas Malvinas- a claim more contentious since the discovery of undersea oil deposits. The population of the Falklands is 70% British descent, and overwhelmingly prefer to be UK citizens.

The Falkland Islands are self-sufficient due to wool and fishery exports, but they also produce stamps and coins for the collector market. Their coins, minted in the UK, are the same size as British currency, but denominated in Falkland Pounds at a 1:1 rate to the British Pound.
