Roberto Menchaca has published a new book on circulating Cuban coinage. Congratulations! Here's his announcement.
My new book
HISTORY OF THE COIN CIRCULATION IN CUBA (Roberto Menchaca García, Editorial Punto Rojo Libros, 2023) has just been published.
The book is the continuation of an earlier work published in 2013, "La moneda cubana en circulación" (
The Cuban coins in circulation; see also E-Sylum, vol. 16, nr. 33, Aug. 10, 2013), and delves into the study of the historical context in which the various types of coins have been produced in the country. To this aim, an extensive bibliographic research was carried out, covering inter alia numerous newspapers and magazines, official reports and the information contained in the archives of the Numismatic Museum of Havana.
The first chapter is devoted to the general study of the coinage made in each of the periods, that the Cuban history can be divided. The following chapters detail the characteristics of the various coins produced since 1915 till present. The coinage produced on behalf of the National Institute of Tourism and the convertible currency are discussed in a subsequent chapter.
The book further includes annexes containing detailed information on other coins of great significance in the history of Cuba, the use of countermarks in the island as well as the technical specifications of the coins discussed and the legal provisions authorising the coinage.
The book can be purchased online at several libraries (www.todostuslibros.com; www.libros.cc; www.elkar.eus; soon too in: www.amazon.es; www.fnac.es; www.casadellibro.com), on the web page of the editorial house (www.puntorojolibros.com) or it could be directly ordered with the author (firstname.lastname@example.org). Both, a paper copy or an electronic version can be ordered.
Please note, that the Spanish version of the book,
APUNTES HISTORICOS SOBRE LA CIRCULACION DE LA MONEDA EN CUBA (Roberto Menchaca García, Editorial Punto Rojo Libros, 2023), has also been published.
