Sailfish & President Julius Nyerere 10 Senti Tanzania Authentic Coin Money for Jewelry and Craft Making

Great for Father's Day.

The back of the coin bears an Indo Pacific Sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus) jumping to the left above the denomination. Tano means 5 in Swahili.

The front of the coin bears a portrait of the first president of Tanzania, Julius Nyerere facing left, with the country and date of mintage above. The Swahili motto "Rais wa Kwanza" means "First President." (Kwanza means "first" or "first fruits".) He is held in deep respect within Tanzania, where he is often referred to by the Swahili honorific Mwalimu ("teacher") and described as the "Father of the Nation".
