Today, you have the opportunity to get 2021 Proof Republic of Sierra Leone 60th Anniversary of Independence 1 oz Sterling Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The Republic of Sierra Leone has a unique history as a region in which many formerly enslaved Africans from across the continent resettled between the late-16th and early 19th centuries. The region fell under British colonial control starting in 1800 and experienced a wave of slave resettlement at the time following the abolition of the slave trade in Britain in 1807. Britain ruled the region from 1800 to 1961, granting the nation independence in April 1961.

On April 27, 1961, Sierra Leone gained independence from the United Kingdom. Like many nations granted independence from a colonial power, Sierra Leone has struggled to maintain a democracy over the years, experiencing one-party rule, military coups, and junta leadership. Since 1998, Sierra Leone has enjoyed political stability with a democratic form of government.
