    Didnt even know Somalia had a working currency. That country is in such disaray.
    There is no silver left around here...

    This is the coin I found, but not the EXACT one...ie I did not take this picture, but same coin, same year. It is made of very light metal, probably all aluminum.

    i found one of those last year....her's a quote from fsnet.co.uk
    However, over recent years, coins in the name of Somalia have been amongst those leading the way in what it is still quite a new marketing trick - collector coins in the form of a small sized coins in base alloys and with very low denominations.


    5 Shillings 2000 FAO. Scale 200 dpi.

    The first very low denomination collector coins of the Republic of Somalia, I saw appear on the market, were a 5 Shillings coin and a 10 Shillings coin dated 2000. First appearing around July 2002, these were part of a multi-national series of such coins all bearing the legend “XXI CENTURY FOOD SECURITY”. The other pieces in the series were just one type each from Andorra, Cook Islands, Namibia, Panama, Samoa, Tunisia and Turkey. The total face value equivalent per set was less than 10 U.S. Cents. (Namibian and Tunisian pieces can be seen on the following pages of this site NAMIBIA and TUNISIA .)
    they are a commemorative coin
