West Africa (French, Cameroon) 5, 10, and 25 Francs  1958
West Africa (French, Cameroon) 5, 10, and 25 Francs 1958

These aluminum-bronze coins with the wreathed denomination on one side, and three giant eland on the other side along with the date, were minted only in 1958 for circulation in Cameroon, originally called French West Africa, then French Equatorial Africa, and finally, today, Cameroon.

These coins are modern and very common. In circulated grade they are worth face value - 5, 10 or 25 francs in Cameroon. If you have a fully uncirculated example, a keen collector might pay a few US dollars to add it to his or her collection.

Coin: 14405 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
