Might the 2016 series be the only coins with a text in Creole?

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

That's a strong possibility.
Visit the website of The Royal Mint Museum.

Reverse of the 1 cent coin.



The reverse of the 1 cent coin features a Gardiner's frog (Sooglossus gardineri).

The coins feature the names of their featured wildlife in three forms.

First you see the English name, followed by the name in Seychellois creole, and finally the scientific name.

Looks like French to me

Peter

The commemorative series from 1986 (independence anniversary), 1987 (liberation (= coup d'├ętat) anniversary) and 1988 (central bank anniversary) also have text in Creole along with English.
