Coins from Cape Verde

Cape Verde (Cabo Verde) is a former Portuguese colonial possession off the western Atlantic coast of Africa. First claimed by Portuguese explorers in the late 15th century, its first coinage appeared only in 1930 with the Portuguese Escudo. Further issues were minted in 1949, 1953, and 1968, until independence in 1975 from Portugal following the Carnation Revolution, whereupon a new Cape Verdean Escudo was issued starting in 1977.
