The Gambia
The Gambia became a British colony in 1588 when it was purchased by Britain, but became independent, and part of Sierra Leone, before reverting to a British colony again in 1888. It became independent again in 1965, and arepublic in 1970.
The Gambia gained its independence from the UK in 1965; it formed a short-lived federation of Senegambia with Senegal between 1982 and 1989. In 1991 the two nations signed a friendship and cooperation treaty. A military coup in 1994 overthrew the president and banned political activity, but a 1996 constitution and presidential elections, followed by parliamentary balloting in 1997, completed a nominal return to civilian rule. The country undertook another round of presidential and legislative elections in late 2001 and early 2002.

Gambian Coins
Gambia first issued its own coins in 1966.
