Bahamas $2 Flamingo theme 1966-1991

Set Description
Set consists of both Proof and Mint State coins in both silver and cupro nickel composition.The set contains many low mintage coins, and many of these coins were melted in large numbers in the early 1980's when silver peaked around $40 an ounce. How many of these beautiful coins remain is unknown but certainly far fewer than were minted. The lowest mintage is the 1980 MS coins,of which it has been recorded that only 70 pieces were struck. 29 coins in total complete this set

Set Goals
To build and complete sets of original Bahama coinage in the denominations of.50-$1-$2-$5 and $10 1966-1992. I have always been a fan and think these are some of the most beautiful designs ever struck. They have suffered the ravages of high silver prices causing many,many thousands of them to be melted, some even by the mints themselves.
