|The Very Latest Coins...|
A Brief History
Somalia was known to the Egyptians at least 1,500 years BC. The region became strategically important after the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. In 1888, Great Britain declared the area of British Somaliland a protectorate. Italian Somaliland was created in 1895 by purchase from the Sultan of Zanzibar.
The two areas briefly combined from 1960, but there was a military revolution in 1969. Recent years have been marked by political instability. Somaliland in the northwest is an independent state but is unrecognised by Somalia and most other states.
Coins of Italian Somaliland from 1909 to 1925 are relatively scarce, and British Somaliland used coins of the East African Currency Board from 1945 to 1961. At independence in 1950, five different denomination of Somalian coins were issued, but Somalia has a small population at about 7 million, and is one of the world's poorest countries. The Somali Republic issued some impressive coins in 1965 to celebrate its fifth anniversary of independence, and the Democratic Republic has issued coins since 1970, including many commemorative issues.
Somalia has recently issued a number of three-part tri-metallic coins, including the Queen Mother Crown, and the Year of the Snake Crown.
