Stoltenhoff Island 8 coin set 2008

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.
