Guyana lies on the northeastern coast of South America, between Venezuela on the west,
Surinam on the east and Brazil on the south. The Dutch established the nation's first settlement in 1596.
However England won the competition among European powers to colonize the country and founded the
colony of British Guiana in 1831. Guyana became a sovereign nation upon declaring independence in 1966.
To honor the occasion of the nation's tenth anniversary of independence, the government of
Guyana authorized the redesign of nation's monetary coins. Appropriately, these coins portray exotic wild animals
indigenous to this beautiful land.
The reverse design on each of the coins displays the nation's coat of arms which emphasizes
Guyana's abundant agricultural and mineral resources, as well as its intriguing plants and animals. In addition,
Guyana's motto, "One People, One Nation, One Destiny," reflects the self-confidence and determination of the
people of this new nation.
