The Territory of Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory, comprises a group of 27 coral islands located in the Indian Ocean about 1,300 miles west of Australia. Only 2 islands are currently inhabited, has an area of 5.4 square miles and a population of less than 1,000. It was discovered by Captain William Keeling of the British East India Company in 1609. Alexander Hare, an English adventurer, established a settlement but it lasted only a year. A permanent settlement was established on Direction Island in 1827 by Hare and Captain John Clunies Ross, a Scot, for the purposes of storing East Indian spices for reshipment to Europe during periods of shortage. When the experiment in spice futures did not develop satisfactorily, Hare left the islands, leaving Ross as sole owner. These J.S. Clunies Ross plastic ivory tokens are rare as few have survived since they were first manufactured more than 100 years ago. Each of the tokens has its own unique serial number. $1200

I have thousands of world coins. I have tended to only buy coins with eye appeal, rather than coins that have ugly designs or are completely worn out or damaged. Since I have thousands of foreign coins for sale, I only have room for a small number of them for sale on-line. If you want to buy coins you don't see on my web site, let me know. I just might have them for sale.
