|The Very Highest Quality Beninese Coins...|
Formerly known as French Dahomey, Benin is an African country just to the west of Nigeria. Its capital is Porto Novo and its main export is cotton, and it had the distinction of being the first African country to have an African leader who stepped down voluntarily in the post-colonial period.
The currency of Benin is the West African CFA Franc. The majority of coins are commemorative.
