Coins of Senegal

A Brief History
Although prehistoric megaliths exist in Senegal, its modern history begins with its discovery by the Portuguese in the 15th century, and its 17th century settlement by the French. Senegal then remained under French influence or control until it became independent in 1960.

Senegal formed a monetary union, the UMAO or Union Monetaire Ouest Africaine (Monetary Union of West African States), which includes Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mauretania, Niger, And Togo. Mali was also a member but left in 1962. Some of the countries also issue coins in their own name. Our featured coin dated 1975 was issued to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Eurafrique programme.
The obverse of the 1975 silver proof 150 francs shown has a portrait of Leopold Sedar Senghor the first president of Senegal, and the reverse shows a pelican flying over an outline map of Africa and Europe.
