Independence of The Bahamas.

Independence of The Bahamas.
A 22K Gold Bahamas $100 commemorative coin issued to celebrate the independence of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. This coin is unusual due to the fact that it displays two dates.....1975 (the year of issue) and on the other face is the date 1973 (the year of independence) below the Queen's portrait.

The Bahamas became a British Crown colony in 1718 when Britain clamped down on piracy. After the American War of Independence, thousands of American Loyalists (taking their enslaved Africans with them) moved to the Bahamas where the Americans set up a plantation economy. After Britain abolished the international slave trade in 1807, the Royal Navy resettled many free Africans (liberated from illegal slave ships) in the Bahamas during the 19th century. Hundreds of American slaves and Black Seminoles escaped to the islands from Florida and nearly 500 were freed from American merchant ships by the Royal Navy. The Bahamas became an independent Commonwealth Realm in 1973, retaining Queen Elizabeth II as it's monarch.
