Hi malawi.

It seems that is written "10" and "BNA"

Seems that we have yet another bimetallic from Angola: a 1 Kwanza coin commemorating 30th anniversary of national bank..strange thing is that it's dated 2006 but being issued in 2013. :o

Strictly speaking, I have no idea. :( Somehow I don't understand purpose of issuing a bimetallic coin for such a small denomination (it's worth 1 US cent)..and National Bank's website is not one of the friendliest either ;), it's in Portuguese only. So we will have to wait for some time to get more information.

They could have waited for three more years and could have issued a coin commemorating 40th anniversary instead. :D Strange idea this is...

Hi friends!

This coin was minted to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Central Bank in 2006, but was issued in 2007. It's not for general circulation, was minted in gold and silver with a limit issue of 2,500 coins that's could be bought in the branches of this bank: http://www.bfa.ao/Canais/Arquivo.asp?id=13&articleid=836&lang=1

It seems that the new coins and banknotes are made in Russia. There's no mintmark on the coins, but I suspect they have been minted in Moscow (St-Petersburg coins usually have differend, more matte finish - can't be sure though, haven't found any official information yet)


Goznak has executed a large export order
[21.08.2013]
In December 2012 a run of 9 face values of banknotes and 4 face values of coins was manufactured under the order of the National Bank of the Republic of Angola and shipped to the customers. Sets of exclusive security features developed at the Research Institute of Goznak and the Security Technology Directorate of the company were applied to the banknotes and coins which are already in circulation in the Republic of Angola.

Goznak exports about 5000 tons of banknote paper every year, which amounts to almost half of the productive capacity for this type of product. In the last 5 years over 20 countries have ordered banknote paper at Goznak, including the largest banknote paper importers Indonesia and Nigeria, as well as a number of banknote manufacturers in Germany, France, Canada. Today Goznak is holding a firm position in the first quinary of banknote paper suppliers in the international market.

In the last 5 years Goznak has broken through to the competitive and high-tech international market of banknote supply. In the 1990s Goznak left the international banknote market almost completely. Companies from Europe and North America took its place. The return to the international market has required a lot of efforts in the fields of developing competitive products and product promotion. Today Goznak exports over 1 billion banknotes per year and occupies a place in the quinary of the world leaders according to this index. The banknotes manufactured at Goznak are in circulation in 10 countries, including such countries as Angola, Yemen, Cambodia, Guatemala, Lebanon, Malaysia etc.

According to a press release from the National Assembly, the participants will also vote for the Bill authorising the National Reserve Bank of Angola to issue and put into circulation the metal coins of 20 Kwanza.

Any more news on the off-metal issues? Patterns? Coated/not coated versions? Or maybe new, cheaper versions for such a small valued coin.

Reminded me that I didn't buy this coin set yet.
