1968 Kenya 10 Cents

Have a Kenyan coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

The one and only coin from Kenya I have and it is a bit rusty. Nickel-Brass, in certain proportions, has never been popular for coins but still it should not be this rusty.

Check out the reverse it is just a bust. Very seldom is one side of a coin without words or symbol and even rarer is a bust with no indications of the body it belongs to.


That was Mzee Jomo Kenyatta The First President Of Kenya and in later coins it would say that even long after his death.

The front says REPUBLIC OF KENYA 19 HARAMBEE 68 10 TEN CENTS. Harambee translates to "synergy" it is a Swahili word and was used in Kenya as an expression of community efforts to work together.

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / Kenya
Year: 1968
Mintage: 12,000,000
Metal: Nickel-Brass
Value: $0.20 in Fine
