Presenting the 2020 Edition of African Pride – The Cradle of Humankind. What Charles Darwin already assumed in 1871, was proven in 1924, when the oldest human fossil was found in Africa, more precisely in South Africa. It is expected to be more than 2 million years old.

For the first time, 14 African countries have collaborated to commemorate our heritage with this beautiful 7-coin .9999 pure gold set.
