Ghana, 2007.



1   pesewa.   Adomi Bridge.
5   pesewas.  Man blowing horn.
10 pesewas.  Book.
20 pesewas.  Cocoa pod.
50 pesewas.  Market woman.
1   cedi.        Scales of Justice.



Competent, but not marvellous. The bridge design is my favourite.

The South African Mint designed the reverse of the 1 to 50 pesewa coins, whilst the Royal Canadian Mint designed the reverse of the 1 cedi coin.

Zambia, 2012.



5   ngwee.   Zambezi indigobird, or twinspot indigobird.  (Vidua codringtoni).
10 ngwee.   Eland.
50 ngwee.   African elephant.
1   kwacha. Zambian barbet, or Chaplin's barbet.  (Lybius chaplini).




On January 1 2013 the currency was redenominated, and the new kwacha was equal to 1000 old kwacha.

New coins were introduced, namely for 5, 10, 50 ngwee and 1 kwacha.

Those coins were all dated 2012, however.

The coins and the new designs were the work of the South African Mint.
