Togo - Silver Proof One Ounce Year of the Monkey

Our featured coin is a 2004 one ounce silver proof 'Year of the Monkey' coin, with a denomination of 1,000 Francs. There is no date in western numerals, but we presume the Chinese characters include the date. It does seem strange for a Francophone country to have its coins inscribed in Chinese!

Tristan da Cunha - Silver Proof 50 Pence

Named after Tristao da Cunha who discovered the island in 1506, it has only been inhabited since 1810. On August 5th 1867 HRH Prince Alfred the Duke of Edinburgh visited the island, and its only village was named Edinburgh in his honour, making it fitting that the coin shown mentions Prince Philip the present Duke of Edinburgh, and celebrated the 40th anniversary of his marriage to H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth II. The island is a volcano which erupted in 1961, all the entire population of about 300 islanders were evacuated, and almost all returned between 1962 and 1963.
