As part of 50th anniversary, the Central Bank on Wednesday launched a bimetallic coin with a face value of K50, bearing the portrait of President Sata.

“The coin bears the Coat of Arms which is Zambia’s national symbol with the wording ‘Zambia’ and face value of fifty kwacha on the obverse side while the reverse side bears the portrait of the incumbent President with the wording ‘Bank of Zambia 50th anniversary’ and the commemoration period 1964-2014,” Dr Gondwe explained.

I assume it's not for circulation, 1 Kwacha is the biggest coin at the moment.
