Ghana, 2007.

1   pesewa.   Adomi Bridge.
5   pesewas.  Man blowing horn.
10 pesewas.  Book.
20 pesewas.  Cocoa pod.
50 pesewas.  Market woman.
1   cedi.        Scales of Justice.



Competent, but not marvellous. The bridge design is my favourite.

The South African Mint designed the reverse of the 1 to 50 pesewa coins, whilst the Royal Canadian Mint designed the reverse of the 1 cedi coin.

Zambia, 2012.

5   ngwee.   Zambezi indigobird, or twinspot indigobird.  (Vidua codringtoni).
10 ngwee.   Eland.
50 ngwee.   African elephant.
1   kwacha. Zambian barbet, or Chaplin's barbet.  (Lybius chaplini).




On January 1 2013 the currency was redenominated, and the new kwacha was equal to 1000 old kwacha.

New coins were introduced, namely for 5, 10, 50 ngwee and 1 kwacha.

Those coins were all dated 2012, however.

The coins and the new designs were the work of the South African Mint.

The 1 pound coin featuring giraffes was released not long afterwards.




And eventually a 2 pounds coin was also issued.

Do you know of any more overseas coin sets that were designed by the South African Mint?

As seen in the topic "Tommy Sasseen, Coin Designer".... You could add Rhodesia and some Swaziland here...

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Yes, my own topic and I forgot about it. There are hundreds of them, though.  :D
