Rhodesia – 1966 – 1 year of independence – 3 coins gold proof set – NGC grading and org. case

On the anniversary of Rhodesia’s Declaration of Independence, November 11, 1966, the Reserve Bank of Rhodesia released special gold coins. This collection includes coins in denominations of 5 pounds, 1 pound and 10 shillings.

The special thing about these editions is the very high grading of the individual editions with PF66, PF68 and PF68 Cameo by the NGC.

Manufactured in the renowned South African Mint in Pretoria, these coins are characterized by an impressive fineness of 916,666 thousandths and are manufactured in the high-quality “Proof” minting method. Another notable detail is the milled edge of each coin.

Design:
