Stoltenhoff Island is a small uninhabited island in the South Atlantic
Ocean, part of the Nightingale Islands. It is the smallest of the
Nightingale Islands, and is to the north west of Nightingale Island
itself. They are governed as part of Tristan da Cunha, a dependency of
the British Overseas Territory of Santa Helena.
This island is named after the two brothers Gustav and
Friedrich Stoltenhoff who tried to settle on the nearby Inaccessible
Island. But their attempt was abandoned after two difficult years.
These are the first coins from this island and they
have a very low mintage.
