WHEN A COMPANY RAN A COUNTRY  -  THE MOZAMBIQUE COMPANY

Reduced size images
The 1885 Congress of Berlin carved up Africa, granting various European nations control over of the continent.  The boundaries that were set in the conference still make up most of the national boundaries in Africa today.  Portugal was granted control over Mozambique; however it did not have the economic or military resources to control the vast territory.  In 1891 it granted The Mozambique Company (Companhia de Moçambique) a 50 year concession over the central region of Mozambique.  The Company was given almost complete control over the region,  including the right to exploit resources, collect taxes and require the natives to engage in forced labor.  It ran the Post Offices and issued its own currency.  It developed the port of Beira and built a railroad to the landlocked British colonies of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. However it did not have the financial resources needed to develop the rest of its territory and often failed to meet its obligations to the Portuguese government.  Most of its income came from its ability to tax and its power to use conscripted labor on its plantations. In 1929 the Mozambique Company took over the issuance of currency within its territory. Most of the company's trade was with the British colonies so  it chose to issue its notes in the British Pound Sterling.  Lower denomination notes were issued in Centavos, with 100 Centavos equal to 1 Pound Sterling.     Because of the company's poor performance and changes in the Portuguese government,  the company's concession was not renewed when it expired in 1942.  The Portuguese Government assumed direct control of the region.  The currency issued by the Company was recalled and punch cancelled.  From the Mozambique Company we have the 20 Centavos note dated November 25, 1933 and the 5 Pound note dated January 15, 1934.  Both notes are punch cancelled "PAGO 5.11.1942"  (PAID November 5, 1942), which was shortly after the Company lost its concession.   The notes were printed in London by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.   They are fascinating notes  from a private company that ran a country.

In 1975 Mozambique gained independence from Portugal, who had ruled the area for hundreds of years.  Coins were ordered for the newly independent country, including these 1975 copper 5 and 10 Centimos.  Mozambique President Samora Machel is pictured on the obverse of both coins.  The reverse of the 5 Centimos pictures a purple dissotis flower and the 10 Centimos depicts sugar cane sprigs.  The coins however never entered general circulation.  In a fit of vengeance, the new government of Mozambique ordered all those of Portuguese ancestry to leave the country within 24 hours.  They were allowed to take only 20kg. (44 pounds) of their possessions.  Many of those expelled had lived in Mozambique for generations and had few links with Portugal.  Though they were not able to take their possessions, they did take their knowledge.  The country immediately fell into a total economic collapse.  By the time the coins had been minted, they were virtually worthless. Most are believed to have been melted and only a few examples escaped.  Coins are Uncirculated thought slightly toned.

South Africa regularly issues circulating bi-metallic 5 Rand coins.   The 2018 issue commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela on this 2018 bi-metallic 5 Rand coin.  Though he spent 27 years in prison for his anti-apartheid activities, he helped negotiate a peaceful end to South Africa’s apartheid government and helped foster racial reconciliation.  In 1994 he was elected as the countries first black President.  Unlike many political leaders he stepped down after his first term in office. The 2017 issue commemorates the Order of the Companions of O.R. Tambao.   The Order is presented by the President of South Africa to foreign citizens who have promoted South African interests.  The order includes a suspended medal and a carved wooden walking stick, both of which are depicted on the coin.  The coin was issued on the 100th anniversary of the birth of Oliver Reginald Tambao.   Tambao, was a founding member of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League in 1943 and was President of the ANC from 1967 to 1991.    The 2015 issue commemorates the 200th Anniversary of the Griqua town coinage.  The coins were the first local currency of South Africa.  The coin depicts the obverse and reverse of the 1815 silver Griqua town 5 pence.  Griqua town, now called Griekwastad is located in Northern Cape Province of South Africa.  It was settled primarily by descendents of European male colonists and indigenous Khoikhoi women who called themselves Bastaards.  The London Missionary Society established a mission there in 1805.  The Society thought the name was offensive and convinced them to change it to Griqua, which was a corruption on the name of the native group that once inhabited the area.   The Griquas were formidable traders and held formal trade fairs, though most commerce was done by barter owing to a lack of money.  Around 1815 the London Missionary Society arranged for the Griqua coins to be struck and shipped to South Africa. It is unclear how widely the coins actually circulated.   The 2014 issue commemorates “20 Years of Freedom”.  In 1994 South Africa implemented a new constitution and held its first general election with universal suffrage.  The election was won by the African National Congress, which has been in power ever since.  The design features a line of people waving a South African flag.  The coins all are 26mm with a brass center and copper-nickel ring.  The arms of South Africa and the name of the country in one or two of its official languages is on the reverse.

In the 1990's a firm in London named the International Currency Bureau, Ltd, commonly known as ICB , attempted to win contracts to issue coins for various third world nations.  They would design and strike a limited number of pattern coins for each country in hopes of winning a contract.  Though many of their issues were attractive, they were unable to win any major contracts.  After a few years they went bankrupt and were liquidated.  In 1996 ICB produced a number of pattern 2000 Shilingi coins for Tanzania. The coins all commemorated the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta Georgia, the Olympics Centenary and the 15th Anniversary of the Independence of Tanzania. The 38mm coins were struck in various metals, with both reeded and unreeded edges.   The reverse features various Olympic athletes.  The obverse featured the arms of Tanzania and the denomination. 100 of each variety of the  coins were struck.  We recently acquired a very limited number of these scarce and attractive pattern coins.  They are some of the scarcest 1996 Atlanta Olympic coins available! The coins are all denominated as 2000 Shillingi or 2000 Shilingi and are Proof.  Some of the brass issues may be be slightly toned.  Items are listed by the Bruce number as listed in the Unusual World Coins book.

SCARCE WEST AFRICAN COINS Wholesale prices available to dealers

Coins of Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal
3 BI-METALLIC COINS OF TOGO
The West African States is a monetary union made up of former French colonies in Western Africa.  They all use a common currency and the same coins in all the countries.  Until now, the member nations have issued few, if any coins under their own name.  In 2003 coins were issued for all seven members of the West African States through the West African Development Bank.
Benin issued a  nickel-plated steel 1500 Franc coin that features a buffalo and a bird. Burkina Faso, formerly known as Upper Volta, released its first coin ever.  It is a bi-metallic (aluminum-bronze/copper-nickel) 6000 Franc coin that features birds and a Rhinoceros. From Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire) comes its first coin since 1966.  It is a nickel-plated steel 1500 Franc coin that features a pair of elephants embracing each other with their trunks. The nickel-plated steel 1500 Franc coin of Mali features a Gazelle under a tree. Niger issued its first coin since 1968, and its first ever non-precious metal coin. It is a brass-colored 3000 Francs that features a lion. Senegal issued its first ever non-precious metal coin.  It is an aluminum-bronze 3000 Franc coin that features a Galago, a small primate that is commonly called a Bush Baby. Togo issued three bi-metallic 6000 Franc coins. The first features a pair of embracing elephants. Another features a bare-breasted Guin woman.  The third features Gnassingbe Eyadema, who has served as President of that nation continuously since 1967, making him the longest ruling leader in Africa.  The coin lists the dates of his Presidency as 1967 - 2003, as he had previously had announced he would retire in 2003.  Like so many African rulars, he decided not to retire after all. (suprise, suprise!).
The coins  have a mintage of only 1200 pieces each.  As might be expected, most of the coins were grabbed by government and bank officials upon their release.  Because these nations have issued so few coins, they are avidly sought after by one-coin-from-a-country collectors, as well as animal collectors.  We sold out of most issues the first time we offered these, however were lucky enough to find a new supply.

ZIMBABWE 2003 COIN SET 

Zimbabwe 10 and 25 Dollar coins, 2003 KM14 & KM15
In 2003 Zimbabwe minted two new high denomination coins, a 10 Dollar coin picturing a water buffalo and a 25 Dollar coin showing a group of soldiers.  By the time the coins were designed and minted, ongoing inflation made them almost worthless, so they were not released to circulation at that time.  In August 2008 Zimbabwe revalued their currency for the second time by removing 10 zeros from the currency.  As part of the 2008 revaluation, the 2003 dated $10 coin (worth $100,000,000,000.00  of the old currency) and $25 (replaces $250,000,000,000.00 of the old currency) were finally released.  The coins however circulated only very briefly as inflation continued to increase and within a few weeks the coins were again worthless.

ZIMBABWE TRILLION DOLLAR BILLS!

Zimbabwe $10 Trillion Dollars banknote 2008, P88Zimbabwe $100 Trillion Dollars banknote 2008, P91
Reduced size images
On January 16. 2009 Zimbabwe released the highest denomination notes ever issued by a national government, including the $10 Trillion and the infamous $100 Trillion dollar bills.  Despite the government "outlawing inflation" (which is about as effective as outlawing the tides from rising), inflation soared to an estimated 231 million percent per year in 2008, the highest ever in history.  Rather than attempting to solve the problem the government just kept printing money in order to pay the army and government employees.   There was a severe shortage of everything, except freshly printed bills. The notes circulated for only about 2 weeks before being replaced.  On February 2, 2009 Zimbabwe did a Trillion to 1 currency revaluation and the short-lived notes were replaced.  About the same time, Zimbabwe’s citizens were allowed to use foreign currencies and the discredited Zimbabwe dollar ceased to be used.  The front of the notes picture the Chiremba Balancing Rocks. The back of each note features two vignettes of Zimbabwe.  They are a fascinating lesson on what happens when the government creates too much money. The notes are Uncirculated and guaranteed to be genuine.

ZIMBABWE PETROL RATION COUPONS USED FOR MONEY Wholesale prices available to dealers

Zimbabwe 5 & 20 Litres petrol and diesel ration coupons
Reduced size images
As Zimbabwe's economy spiraled into complete collapse due to its incompetent government policies, corruption, and massive inflation, shortages developed for most essential items.  Petrol (Gasoline) and Diesel were rationed.  The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe issued the ration coupons which were required in order to purchase fuel.  Because of the rapidly depreciating currency, fuel ration coupons soon became a parallel currency.   Even though fuel was often not available, many merchants accepted the ration coupons rather than the Zimbabwe Dollar in payment for goods and services, as their value was more stable.  We offer a set of two unissued Zimbabwe fuel ration coupons.  One is good for 5 Litres (Liters); the other is good for 20 Litres (about 5 gallons).  The coupons were released around 2005 and could be used to purchase either Petrol or Diesel.   They are an interesting item that was used for money during a time of economic crises.
Item PM-ZW-PETROL SET OF 2 ZIMBABWE PETROL RATION COUPONS, 5 & 20 LITERS UNC. $4.00



ZIMBABWE’S "BOND COINS"  Restocked

Zimbabwe set of 6 "Bond" coins, 1 Cent - 1 Dollar KM16-KM21In 2009, after a decade of hyper-inflation, Zimbabwe allowed foreign currency to circulate.  The U.S. dollar and South African Rand displaced quickly the discredited Zimbabwe dollar and Zimbabwe ceased issuing its own coins or currency.   Because of a shortage of small change, Zimbabweans were forced to take small items such as candy, cigarettes or pens as change.  In December 2014 Zimbabwe attempted to remedy the situation by introducing a new series of coins denominated in U.S. cents. The new coins are called “Bond Coins” because they are backed by a $50 Million bond held by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe. The coins have not been widely accepted due to continued distrust of the government.   The government will not exchange the coins for U.S. dollar, so there is some question if the coins are really backed by dollar bonds.  The four coins released were the 1, 5, 10 and 25 Cents dated 2014.  In March 2015 a 2014 dated 50 Cent Bond coin was released.  A bi-metallic 1 Dollar was released dated 2016 was released in 2016.  All six coins have similar designs. One side has the denomination and the words “BOND COIN”.  The other side features date over the repeated initials RBZ (for Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe). Interestingly, the name of the country appears nowhere on the coin. The plated-steel coins were struck at the South African mint in Pretoria.
