1966 Gold Cyprus Sovereign Archbishop Makarios Coin

1966 Gold Cyprus Sovereign Archbishop Makarios Coin

Cyprus issued its first modern coins in its own name in 1879 under the British. These were minor coins only, piastres and half piastres, there being 9 piastres to the shilling, and twenty shillings to the pound. This system continued until 1955 when Cyprus decimalised its currency, the main change being to introduce the mil, with 50 mils equal to one shilling, and therefore 1,000 mils per pound.
After Cyprus gained its independence as The Republic of Cyprus in 1960, it issued its own coins with new designs, and eliminating the shilling denominations.
The first gold coins of Cyprus were issued in 1966, but are generally considered to be medallic issues. These are denominated as sovereigns, halves and five pounds. .
