Uhuru Kenyata unveils Kenya new currency coins

Tuesday December 11 2018



Nairobi. President Kenyatta has unveiled Kenya’s new generation coins that started circulating today Tuesday December 11, 2018.

The new currency, which was gazetted by the Central Bank of Kenya on Tuesday, contains features that make it accessible to visually impaired people.

And unlike the old coins that had portraits of former presidents Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap Moi, the new legal tender features major historical events in Kenya.

The unveiling of the new currency is in line with provisions of the 2010 Constitution that banned the use of presidential portraits on currency.
