Pitcairn Islands

The Pitcairns are tiny islands - Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno situated in the South Pacific Ocean about midway between Peru and New Zealand. With an area of 46 square kilometres, Pitcairn is the only permanently inhabited island in the group. This rugged volcanic formation with a rocky coastline and high cliffs with only 46 inhabitants (from nine families) is famous for being the least populated country in the world. As one of the most isolated destinations of the world, Pitcairn Islands are truly inaccessible with restricted trade, for any access is possible only with boats from the ships anchored offshore.

Now a British colony, the country has issued a few modern commemorative coins.
