Why purchase this uncirculated 2021 Tanzania Cuckoo Fish 1/1,000 oz. Gold Foil Note?
This stunning gold foil note issued by the Bank of Tanzania is an homage to Lake Tanganyika (the second largest freshwater lake in the world), and the Cuckoo Catfish that is found exclusively in its waters. The note is produced by a specialized minting process, which renders its 24 karat gold content to be one hundred percent recoverable.
Dramatically Colorized Imagery
Obverse: The obverse features the distinctive shape of Lake Tanganyika and view of its shoreline, divided by a vertical band adorned with a repeating pattern of the Tanzanian Coat of Arms. A rendition of the spotted Cuckoo Catfish is positioned in the foreground, with its scientific name "SYNODONTIS MULTIPUNCTATUS" inscribed below. Multiple inscriptions in Swahili and English surround the catfish image, which include "ONE THOUSAND SHILLINGS," "2021," "LEGAL TENDER GOLD" and "TWENTY-FOUR KARAT PURE GOLD."
Reverse: The reverse depicts a Dhow, a traditional sailing vessel frequently utilized on Lake Tanganyika for the purpose of fishing and transportation, with the Coat of Arms of Tanzania and "BANK OF TANZANIA" above. Below, the note's denomination of "1000 ONE THOUSAND SHILLINGS" appears, beside "ONE THOUSANDTH TROY OUNCE GOLD." At right, a catfish pattern is overlapped by the outline of the nation of Tanzania.
