Referendum on Anguilla's Secession
Countermark: ANGUILLA LIBERTY DOLLAR JULY 11, 1967
On 27 February 1967, Britain granted the territory of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla the status of "associated state", with its own constitution and a considerable degree of self-government. Many Anguillans strenuously objected to the continuing political subservience to Saint Kitts, and on 30 May (known as Anguilla Day), the Saint Kitts police were evicted from the island. The provisional government requested United States administration, which was declined. On 11 July 1967 a referendum on Anguilla's secession from the fledgling state was held. The results were 1,813 votes for secession and 5 against. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Anguilla" rel="nofollow"> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Anguilla
