Reverse design depicts the Siege of Brimstone Hill, the largest fortress ever built in the Caribbean. French Soldiers stormed the shores of Saint Kitts in 1782 during the American Revolutionary War. About a year later, the Treaty of Paris restored Saint Kitts and adjacent Nevis to British rule. This fortress is now a UNESCO World Heritage site and a very popular tourist destination that makes this island nation one to visit.
