Silver Ounce 2023 King Charles III Coronation, Coin from Cameroon
CoinSilver Ounce 2023 King Charles III Coronation

The Republic of Cameroon uses the Central African CFA Franc as its currency; it is the common currency of six independent states in central Africa: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The CFA Franc has both common and national issues. All common circulating coins are issued under the authority of CEMAC ("Communauté Économique et Monétaire de l'Afrique Centrale" - Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa) and have no issuing country. Separately, each member country can strike coins bearing its national symbols; these coins are legal tender in the other members of the bloc too.

Cameroon has authorised some foreign mints to strike coins under its issuing authority for collector's purposes. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the internationally popular one ounce (1oz) of silver format.

This coin commemorates the Coronation of King Charles III - the first such event for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth countries in 70 years.

Obverse
Cameroon / Silver Ounce 2023 King Charles III Coronation - obverse photo

Within a beaded border, the obverse of the coin displays the fourth definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom; below the neck truncation, the designer's initials IRB (for IanRank Broadley)

Given that Cameroon has been a republic since it gained independence in 1960, it is unclear why the Queen's effigy is displayed on the coin (not to mention that she died in 2022).

Below it, a small Coat of Arms of the Republic of Cameroon. It features a shield divided in three parts by two diagonal lines; in the central section, an upright sword and scales are superimposed on the outline of the map of the country, above which there is a five-pointed star. Behind the shield, two crossed bundles of rods with axes in the middle. Around above, the motto PAIX TRAVAIL PATRIE in French; in small letters below these, the same in English: PEACE WORK FATHERLAND.

Around the rim, above: ELIZABETH II · 1.000 FRANCS CFA 2022 (one thousand Central African CFA Francs).

Around below, divided by the Coat of Arms, the name of the country in English: · REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON ·.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · 1.000 FRANCS CFA 2023 · REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON ·
Reverse

The reverse design features two portraits facing each other; in an oval on the left, King Charles III; in oval on the right, the Queen Consort. Above the portraits, the Crown of Saint Edward, which has traditionally been used to crown English and British monarchs at their coronations since the 13th century (with a two-century gap between 1689 and 1911).

Around above, the inscription CORONATION OF CHARLES III & CAMILLA. On two lines below the portrait, the date of the coronation: MAY 6 2023.
