Botswana 2013 - New coin family

New circulating set:

All the seven Botswana circulation denominations have been redesigned with year 2013. The 5 thebe is now silver colour and a bit bigger (18 mm instead of 16.90 mm). The 10, 25 and 50 thebe types are now bigger but same colour as before. The 1 pula coin is bigger (26 mm instead of 23.50 mm) and with different design, with birds and landscape as well as the previously existing zebra. The 2 pula is now a nice bimetallic. And finally, the 5 pula is now much bigger than before (28 mm instead of 23.40 mm).

It is a really nice new set, 7 fully new fauna KM types, including 2 new bimetallics. I can't wait to get them for my Africa collection!!!
