Thissale is for one uncirculated: ZAMBIA 5 SHILLINGS 1965 INDEPENDENCE COMMEMORATIVE LIMITED MINTAGE COPPER-NICKEL PROOF COIN PHOTOS IN THIS LISTING ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAILS COIN YOU RECEIVE MAY VARY SOMEWHAT FROM THAT SHOWN IN PHOTOS BUT WILL BE IN SAME GENERAL CONDITION THERE IS SOME TONING AND OXIDATION CONSISTENT WITH AGE OVER 40 YEARS OLD Zambia, a landlocked nation in south-central Africa gained its independence from Great Britain on October 24, 1964. In 1965 Zambia issued a commemorative copper-nickel 5 Shillings coin, struck to commemorate the first anniversary of independence. One side of the coin, struck by the British Royal Mint, shows the bust of the nation's first President, Kenneth Kaunda, a former school teacher and civil servant who helped lead the nation's drive for independence. Around the edge is inscribed "PRESIDENT KAUNDA" and the date of the first anniversary of independence "24 OCTOBER 1965". The other side shows the Zambia seal (which includes its motto:"ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION") and around the edge "ZAMBIA" and the denomination:"FIVE SHILLINGS". The edge is insribed with the national motto and the date of independence. Some of these commemorative coins were struck with REVERSAL of the edge inscription "* ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION * 24.10.1964." In the correct version (which is the coin being sold in this listing), this edge inscription is right-side up when the Zambia seal side of the coin is facing upward. In the error version of this coin (which is NOT the coin being sold in this listing), with the Zambia seal facing upward, the edge inscription appears upside-down.
