Since 2002, Africa Mint has travelled so often to small villages in deep West & Central Africa that we have bought a lot of extremely interesting African Primitive Coins. All those pieces are very interesting and beautiful ! Some have been used as late as in the 1960's and definitively are part of the NUMISMATIC HISTORY of AFRICA !
