Item description

This listing is for one uncirculated: LION HEAD FIRST COIN OF CONGO 10 FRANC 1965 UNC After a series of riots in 1959, Belgium granted independence to the Congo in 1960. The country immediately fell into a bloody civil war. Finally, in 1965, it issued its first coin as an independent nation. It was a large aluminum 10 Franc piece featuring an attractive lion's head. BECAUSE OF INFLATION, THIS COIN RARELY CIRCULATED AND MOST WERE SUBSEQUENTLY MELTED, MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR COLLECTORS TO ACQUIRE TODAY!!! Diameter of coin is about 29 mm (about 1 3/16 inches). Photos enlarged to show details. Pardon glare and reflections in photo. Coin looks great in person! The obverse features the proud detailed face of an African lion with the surround inscribed: "JUSTICE PAIX TRAVAIL." (This is French for justice, peace, and work.) The reverse shows the denomination "10 F" and "Leopoldville." The surround reads: "BANQUE NATIONALE DU CONGO 1965". 100% GUARANTEE OF AUTHENTICITY!!! Ships by USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation.
