Coins of Zimbabwe
« on: October 14, 2008, 07:56:16 AM »
You will all be very pleased to know that I have finally got in the recently-issued $10 & $25 coins from Zimbabwe,which were struck at the Zimbabwean Mint,Bulawayo in 2003.

The $10 coin is around the size of a British 20p. coin in size.It has the head of a Cape Buffalo inside a circle with '$10' above it on the reverse.The edge is milled.

The $25 coin is around the size of a British small 10p. coin in size.It has 3 uniformed figures inside a circle with '$25' to the right on the reverse.The edge is plain sections alternated with milled sections.

Both coins have a metal composition of nickel-plated steel.

Aidan.
