|The Very Latest Coins...|
As Gabon only became independent in 1960, this was the first occasion when it was able to issue coins in its own right. President M'ba guaranteed he would be immortalised by having his portrait and name on the countries new decimal coinage issued from 1960.
The next issue of gold coins was in 1969 under the wonderfully named President Bongo, who we think should have come from Congo.
Unofficial token coins were issued dated from 1925 to 1928, bu these have no denominational mark of value, and had no legal status.
For more information on Gabonese history and coinage please see our history page.
