Swaziland has changed its name.
When do you think the new coin series will come?

Here is a much better link:

Swaziland king renames country Kingdom of eSwatini

and with a clothed URL too.  8)

Also, when people see this topic in 3 years from now, the word "new" will just confuse them.  ::)

Maybe the king should worry about more important things instead. Very tragic.

Well, it took 40 minutes. I am fining you one Polish euro for every minute and 40 tins of shoe polish.  >:(

Yes, you should always be sure to add the link(s) to which you refer. It is helpful and saves everybody time.  ;)
