1981 Colombia 10 pesos:

The reverse of this coin shows a map of the islands of San Andres and Providencia. Thes islands have an unusual history: they were originally colonized by the English in the 17th century but passed to Spain in 1786, becoming part of Colombia when that country became independent in 1822. The islanders remain largely English-speaking and Protestant, while most Colombians are Catholics and speak Spanish!

Interestingly, the US also lays claim to these small Caribbean islands and considers them an unincorporated territory of the US.

Here's one released by the Royal Canadian Mint (R C M) back in 2014. It is the "West Coast Exploration" representative of the Mint's "Exploring Canada" ten-coin series.

The 0.9999 fine silver coin's commemorative reverse depicts George Vancouver examining a map while surveying the landscape in front of him.

Vancouver was a British explorer and cartographer who surveyed the Pacific Northwest regions of North America (Canada and the United States) during an expedition, initiated in 1791 and lasting to 1795, Based on what he saw/learned, he created highly-regarded, detailed and accurate maps.

How about a rare map and coin .
I got this from a dealer who had many cool foreign coins, and this was the only one he had.

Not too many from Spitzbergen, a 1993 100 rubles. It is a cluster of islands north of Norway and was used as a mining community by the Russians. A small smattering of coins were minted in the 40s, then a few more in 1993, and 1998.
A goin into my world coin set , now up to 226 countries from the years 1900 to 2000 even including countries that don't exist anymore. It is a very tough set to work on indeed.


PS, the number 78 on the map on the obverse refers to the islands being 78 degrees north of the equator .
