East Africa German (Tanganyika) Pesa 1890 to 1892

Three states lined the eastern coast of Africa and were under control of three European countries until gaining independence. Kenya was British East Africa, Tanganyika was German East Africa, and Mozambique was Portuguese East Africa.

When Farzni's coin was struck, Tanganyika was German East Africa (Deutsch Ostafrikanische).
