|The Very Highest Quality Botswanan Coins...|
Botswana's first coinage was issued in 1966 upon independence. There were 100 cents = 1 thebe. It appears that only gold 10 Thebe coins and silver 50 cent coins were issued as independence commemoratives, although there is some evidence that at least some of the silver coins circulated. Some time after, the coinage was reformed, and the next coin issues were in 1976, when both ordinary circulation coins and commemorative coins for the tenth anniversary of independence, were issued, with 100 thebe = 1 pula. We tend to see very few Botswanan coins, although some, such as the olympic commemorative 5 pula in our photographs, are quite attractive.
