Angola issues coins to commemorate 40th anniversary of independence

NOVEMBER 9TH, 2015

On Monday Angola will have two new coins with face values of 50 and 100 kwanzas commemorating 40th anniversary of the country’s independence, said the National Bank of Angola in a statement Friday.

The coins will be added to the 2012 kwanza family, which include the 50 cent coin, 1 kwanza, 5 kwanzas, 10 kwanzas to 20 kwanzas, approved by Law 20/12, of 30 July.

The 50-kwanza coin is a metallic colour, semi-serrated, on the obverse reads República de Angola (Republic of Angola) and pictures the raising of the flag on 11 November 1975 by an adult and a child and a mast of the national flag with the inscription “40º Aniversário da Independência Nacional, 1975-2015″ (40th Anniversary of National Independence, 1975-2015).

The 100-kwanza coin is also one colour, coated in bronze and on the obverse reads República de Angola (Republic of Angola) and pictures the raising of the flag on 11 November 1975 by an adult and a child and a mast of the national flag with the inscription “40º Aniversário da Independência Nacional, 1975-2015″ (40th Anniversary of National Independence, 1975-2015).

On the reverse, the two coins have their face value in the centre and the inscription “Kwanzas”, basketry as a symbol of national culture and the year of issue “2015″ at the base. (macauhub/AO)
