COLONIES DE SAINT DOMINGUES
Colonies of Santo-Domingue
Authorized by the Ordinance of 15 Nivose An X (January 5, 1802) issued by then Governor Toussaint Louverture, the present issue was struck in Santo Domingo and commissioned (per Zay, based on a contemporary report by General Kerverseau) to a French citizen named Tixier. Some researchers including Estrella and Lissade have proposed a probable European (English) origin for the dies, due to their relative high engraving quality. Mintage figures for this issue remain unknown.
