FEDERATION OF RHODESIA AND NYASALAND
1962 ONE PENNY LEGAL TENDER BRONZE COMMEMORATIVE COIN UNCIRCULATED
This 26 mm diameter coin is slightly larger than a USA quarter (24.26 mm in diameter).
The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was formed in 1953 by combining Britain’s colonies in central Africa. Tensions between the former colonies mounted over the governance of the Federation. The short-lived Federation was dissolved in 1964, becoming the independent nations of Zambia, Malawi, and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
This attractive 26 mm diameter bronze penny pictures a pair of elephants that are standing on their hind legs and appear to be dancing with their trunks pointing up!!! !! The surround is inscribed: “QUEEN ELIZABETH THE SECOND.”
Elephant society is matriarchal and is generally ruled by an older and wiser cow. In parts of Asia and India only kings could ride an elephant. The elephant is the symbol of wisdom, intelligence and strength in many countries. The elephant is also a good luck charm for many.
