Coins or stamps of a country at times commemorate personages or events of other countries (usualy in the hope that the coins or stamps become object of collection in the interested countries).

It's similar to this Austrian 50 Schilling commemorative coin, but this was for the circulation.

Yeah! you're wright... It looks as my Euro-notes-essay that I bought when I was 12 years old and the Euro was a "funny thing" comming in the future...

But now see the date of issue of the coin: 1999. It's reasonable that Zambians didn't know accurately the Euro-notes design. (Even we didn't knew it then! :wink: )
