Coins from Lesotho

Countries and territories › Lesotho

Lesotho emerged as Basutoland in the early 19th century when king Moshoeshoe Ist unified some tribes around the Butha-Buthe mountain. During the Trek of the Boers, they came into conflict over arable land which resulted in the Free State - Basotho wars, which led to Boer victory, emergence of the Orange Free State and Moshoeshoe Ist asking protection from the British for the remainder of his territory. As such Basutoland became part of the British Empire. In 1966 Lesotho became independent from Britain. It is the only fully enclaved country in the world, bordering only South Africa. Read more
