RHODESIA AND NYASALAND

HOLE COINS

The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was formed in 1953 by combining Britain's colonies in central Africa. This attractive bronze Half Penny  and One Penny pictures a pair of Giraffes and elephants respectively that are standing on their hind legs and appear to be dancing!  The coins were struck with a hole to make it easy to distinguish from other denominations and to allow natives without pockets to easily carry the coins in strings. Tensions between the former colonies mounted over the governance of the Federation. The short-lived Federation was dissolved in 1964, becoming the independent nations of Zambia, Malawi, and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
