The name of this country, which took its independence under the name of Zimbabwe, came to it from the principal instigator of colonization in this area of Africa : Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902), champion of the British imperialist policy, who made fortune in mining industry and diamond trade, which explains the pickaxe on the blazon !

Coins from South Africa

The flag above was never adopted because Boers which were the first colonists, for the majority of Dutch or German origin, never recognized this colony like British. It is difficult to say if the policy of segregation was the fact of the British or of the whole colonists because English were the first to fight the slave system. Anyway, Apartheid (systematic mode of segregation of the coloured persons applied in South Africa until 1994, indicates the Larousse) belongs to the past and the coins of South Africa presented here are simply shown as old by way of British coins and do not demonstrate any sympathy to the doubtful political past of this country, quite to the contrary.
