The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was formed in 1953 by combining Britain's colonies in central Africa.
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!!!
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.
SOME CONSIDER ELEPHANTS WITH TRUNKS POINTING UP TO BE ESPECIALLY LUCKY!!!
The coin was struck with a hole to make it easy to distinguish from other denominations and to allow natives without pockets to easily carry the coins on strings.
The coin is dated 1962 and is Uncirculated. Coin is slightly larger than a USA quarter.
Tensions between the former colonies mounted over the governance of the Federation. The short-lived Federation was dissolved in 1964, becoming the independent nationsof Zambia, Malawi, and Rhodesia (nowZimbabwe).
This commemorative coin makes a great collectible gift for yourself or any coin and/or elephant collector.
