Last month we took a look at the paper money of the fictional African nation of Zamunda, from the Eddie Murphy movie Coming To America. Reader Robert Van Arsdell has located one of the
country's coins. Thanks! -Editor

Attached are images of the Zamunda 5 Pound coin. These things are well-made coins and appear to be struck in brass or bronze. Internet says they were made by the Continental Coin Company, Van Nuys, CA. Apparently
Paramount contracted with CCC to produce the coin and banknote for the movie. The Zamunda coin is 38-39 mm.
