In 2021, the Republic of Sierra Leone celebrates the 60th anniversary of its formal independence from British colonial rule. First explored by the Portuguese in the 15th century, the Republic of Sierra Leone came under British rule as a British Crown Colony in the early 19th century. In fact, Sierra Leones independence came just one year shy of the 500th anniversary of the Portuguese first arriving in the region. Provident Metals now offers the 2021 $1 Republic of Sierra Leone 60th Anniversary of Independence Coin to you for purchase online.

When you purchase the 2021 $1 Republic of Sierra Leone 60th Anniversary of Independence Coin in this listing, you receive a cupro-nickel specimen that is housed in a felt bag.

The typical cupro-nickel coin consists of a combination of copper and nickel for durability, as well as iron and manganese for strength.


In the obverse design of 2021 Republic of Sierra Leone 60th Anniversary of Independence Coins, the mint features the national coat of arms. The detailed design includes a shield with the Lion Mountains symbolized by the lines in the background and a passant lion in the foreground. Heraldic lions support the shield from either side with palm trees flanking the shield as well. Inscriptions on this side read REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE and 2021.


For the reverse design of the 2021 $1 Sierra Leone 60th Anniversary of Independence Coin, you will find a single lion. This large, male lion is lounging on a rock on the plains with a single Acacia tree featured on the horizon in the background. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF INDEPENDENCE and $1.


The process of formal independence in Sierra Leone began in 1956 when the Duke of Kent handed over the royal instruments to Sir Maurice Dorman, then-Governor of Sierra Leone. He was sworn in as Governor-General and Sir Milton Margai became the first Prime Minister of Sierra Leone. In 1961, the nation was granted independence as the Dominion of Sierra Leone with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. In 1971, that relationship ended as the country became the fully independent Republic of Sierra Leone.
