Meet Flo everybody. Flo is your average Jamaican woman who grew up during the time when Jamaica was still under British Colonial governance. She witnessed the momentous occasion of Jamaica’s independence on Monday, August 6, 1962.
But unlike other average Jamaican women, Flo has a not-so-secret passion: Flo collects coins and banknotes. Any coins and banknotes from any country. Her passion (you should’ve seen the sparkle in her eyes when she lovingly spoke of her collection when we met, sprawled out in its glory on her study’s table!) is especially for old Jamaican coins and banknotes; the older the better.
