Magdalen Island consists of a group of islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence,

awarded to Sir Isaac Coffin after the American Revolution. These coins were
made in Birmingham (England). He brought the coins to the Islands and
distributed them by way of loans among the chief men in the Islands.

stepped his mark and revoked his grant to the islands.
