KM-005 - 3,99 g - 21 mm

Edge - Reeded

Mintage - 3.000

This coin was issued by Rhodesia, a former British colony than had declared a Unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1965.  The republic led by Ian Smith came under great pressure from the West and finally signed over the country to black rule.  The country, now known as Zimbabwe, is in utter chaos today after years of mismanagement by the Mugabe government.  This coin was issued to celebrate the first year of independence after UDI and still depicted the Queen with the legend ELIZABETH THE SECOND on the obverse.  The reverse has the nation's arms with the country name, date, and denomination.
