Zambia, 5 Shillings (President Kaunda) 1965 Cupro-nickel Proof

On the 24th of October 1965, Zambia celebrated its first year of independence. The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative crown of Five Shillings for them. On one side you have President Kaunda and on the other the arms of Zambia. This crown is now 55 years old, struck in Proof cupro-nickel by the Royal Mint and is quite scarce. After all, coins in Africa usually turn up well and truly circulated, as they actually use their own coins. It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer this scarce crown of Zambia and don’t forget it is in Proof condition
