Uganda - 50th Anniversary of the National Bank
« on: September 23, 2015, 08:13:10 PM »
In 2016, Uganda is going to issue a collectors coin to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Bank, the coins are currently being minted at the British Royal Mint.

Do you have any further info on this coin? RM indeed minted the golden anniversary coins for the Central Bank of Kenya, which were released in December 2016.

I have no further information on this and do not know if the coin was eventually issued. As this was posted here 2,5 years ago I can not at present recall who was the source of this information nor can I find further information between my own documents.

While researching this I found something else that is of interest though. I found a confirmation that the mint has produced coins for Uganda in 2015. Now, the Weltmünzkatalog 1901-2000 (which also lists circulating coins made after 2000) does not mention any such production at The Royal Mint so it was likely a collectors coin even although no pieces are currently known of such coin. I will contact its author mr Schön and if he does not have any information I may contact the mint.

These are possibly the circulating coins with the 2015 date.

The catalog lists these but mentions them as having been minted at the Royal Canadian Mint. Anyway, as soon as I find out something I will write it here.

Dr. Schön has confirmed British Royal Mint in 2015 minted coins for the 50th anniversary of Uganda's national bank. As mentioned before I have been unable to find any further information about the coins.

The Royal Mint believes they have never issued such coins. In addition to this no such coin was found in the collection of the Royal Mint Museum. Very strange.
