First coin from Mauritius found in my change. African coins are the most difficult to find since there are so many countries and travel is low at least for Americans. Mauritius is a tropical Island that Europeans frequent which is probably how I got this coin.
Mauritius is an island nation between Africa, Australia and India. The have a large Indian population and see tourist from all over but mainly Europe. They have monkeys that are exported to the U.S. for experimentation but because of its location is not a top destination spot for Americans.
