There have been several different reverses for the 5 emalangeni coins in recent years, both for the standard circulation coins and as commemoratives.

New 50th Anniversary of Independence 5 Emalangeni finally revealed by the CBS.

It appears from the press release that there will be no separate King’s Birthday coin this time.

To further support the single coin theory it seems that “Khula mlisa” is a birthday greeting in Swazi language.

This year’s 5 Em coin appears to be issued as business strike only (contrary to the 2008 and 2014 coins).
