1998 - Ten Bututs (10b)
KM#56

In 1998, a new coin series was introduced, in which the effigy of Dawda Jawara was dropped and replaced with the national crest. However, older Jawara era coins still commonly circulate as legal tender. The 1 dalasi coin was also downsized in size and weight, but none of the other coins were changed. Only 25 and 50 bututs and 1 dalasi coins are currently in circulation, they are of the 1998 issue which also included 1, 5 and 10 bututs coins but have since disappeared due to low valuation.

Good Note:

The reverse of this coin first appeared on KM#10 (1971 and 1977). It was reissued with the coat of arms obverse one year only (1998).
