And both pieces (at least part of the mintages) were produced in Berlin ...

So that would explain it. It was just by pure chance that I stumbled across both those coins when I was looking for coins for my "Oak leaves" topic. I've checked, and the Z.A.R. 3d and 6d have the same reverse designs. All the other denominations have specifically South African / Boer designs.

I think they were even designed by the same man: Otto Schultz. Still, hadn't noted the connection before. Good fun.

Obviously, colonies will often use comparable designs, if only the heads of state. I can think of one example where a client state displayed such behaviour. Compare some of the Bulgarian coins of the period 1951 to 1990 with their Soviet counterparts. Some are more comparable than others.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Tanzania circulation 100 shilingi 1994 and Zambia collector 100 kwacha 1998 look suspiciously similar.

The 6d is oak all right, but the 3d is olive.

Indeed, to the extent that they didn't even bother changing the language on the side with the hands/flags - the Bulgarian coin has Russian text (eternal friendship).

It took only 33 years and fellow Slavs are on opposite sides. ???

We already know about the coins from Belgium, San Marino and the Vatican that commemorate the 25th anniversary of the end of the Berlin Wall. Ah, but Burundi, Cameroon and Samoa also issued something on that occasion. And, surprise, the designs are similar ...
