I have a few Solomon Islands coins but the catalogues list quite a few, some of which I have yet to prove the existence of. Does anyone have any of these in their collections? Solomon Islands coins dated 1977-1983 all exist with the FM mintmark but some of those years are meant to exist without the mintmark and those are the ones I'm interested in.

"Does anyone else have any of these?"
may be few and far between because as you are well aware, so few were minted.

Nevertheless and interesting topic for just that reason - so few of them were minted.

I share your interest.

Whereabouts on the coin is the FM mintmark located ... I couldn't find it on any of the coins that I have?

Agreed, and a junk box is the best place to find these coins - not ideal.

Oooh, I don't have any in front of me... but I think it's a little stylised F in the bottom right of the reverse of each denomination.
