Item: i111427 Authentic Coin of. Ivory Coast Félix Houphouët-Boigny 1966 Proof 10 Francs 34mm (25.00 grams) 0.925 Silver 0.7435 oz. ASW Reference: KM# 1, Schön# 1 PRESIDENT FELIX HOUPHOUET BOIGNY 1966, Bust facing right. REPUBLIQUE DE CÔTE D’IVOIRE 10 FRS. TRAVAIL, Elephant above denomination within wreath. Félix Houphouët-Boigny (18 October 1905 – 7 December 1993), affectionately called Papa Houphouët or Le Vieux (“The Old One”), was the first president of Ivory Coast, serving from 1960 until his death in 1993. A tribal chief, he worked as a medical aide, union leader and planter before being elected to the French Parliament. He served in several ministerial positions within the French government before leading Côte d’Ivoire following independence in 1960. Throughout his life, he played a significant role in politics and the decolonization of Africa. Under Houphouët-Boigny’s politically moderate leadership, Ivory Coast prospered economically. This success, uncommon in poverty-ridden West Africa, became known as the “Ivorian miracle”; it was due to a combination of sound planning, the maintenance of strong ties with the West (particularly France) and development of the country’s significant coffee and cocoa industries. However, reliance on the agricultural sector caused difficulties in 1980, after a sharp drop in the prices of coffee and cocoa. Throughout his presidency, Houphouët-Boigny maintained a close relationship with France, a policy known as Françafrique, and he built a close friendship with Jacques Foccart, the chief adviser on African policy in the de Gaulle and Pompidou regimes. He aided the conspirators who ousted Kwame Nkrumah from power in Ghana in 1966, took part in the failed coup against Mathieu Kérékou in Benin in 1977, was suspected of involvement in the 1987 coup d’état that removed Thomas Sankara from power in Burkina Faso and provided assistance to UNITA, a United States-supported, anti-communist rebel movement in Angola. Houphouët-Boigny maintained a strong anti-communist foreign policy, which resulted in, among other things, severing diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union in 1969 (after first establishing relations in 1967) and refusing to recognise the People’s Republic of China until 1983. He re-established relations with the Soviet Union in 1986. In the West, Houphouët-Boigny was commonly known as the “Sage of Africa” or the “Grand Old Man of Africa”. At the time of his death, he was the longest-serving leader in Africa’s history and the third longest-serving leader in the world after Fidel Castro of Cuba and Kim Il-sung of North Korea. In 1989, UNESCO created the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize for the “safeguarding, maintaining and seeking of peace”. After his death, conditions in Côte d’Ivoire quickly deteriorated. Between 1994 and 2002, there were a number of coups, a devaluation of the CFA franc and an economic recession; a civil war began in 2002. Ivory Coast, also known as Côte d’Ivoire, officially the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, is a country located on the south coast of West Africa. Côte d’Ivoire’s political capital is Yamoussoukro in the centre of the country, while its economic capital and largest city is the port city of Abidjan. It borders Guinea to the northwest, Liberia to the west, Mali to the northwest, Burkina Faso to the northeast, Ghana to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea (Atlantic Ocean) to the south. The official language of the republic is French, with local indigenous languages also being widely used that include Bété, Baoulé, Dioula, Dan, Anyin, and Cebaara Senufo. In total, there are around 78 different languages spoken in Ivory Coast. The country has large populations of the adherents of Christianity, Islam and various indigenous religions. Before its colonization by Europeans, Ivory Coast was home to several states, including Gyaaman, the Kong Empire and Baoulé. The area became a protectorate of France in 1843 and was consolidated as a French colony in 1893 amid the European scramble for Africa. It achieved independence in 1960, led by Félix Houphouët-Boigny, who ruled the country until 1993. Relatively stable by regional standards, Ivory Coast established close political and economic ties with its West African neighbours while at the same time maintaining close relations to the West, especially France. In 2000, the country adopted a new constitution. Ivory Coast is a republic with strong executive power vested in its president. Through the production of coffee and cocoa, the country was an economic powerhouse in West Africa during the 1960s and 1970s, though it went through an economic crisis in the 1980s, contributing to a period of political and social turmoil. It was not until around 2014 that the gross domestic product again reached the level of its peak in the 1970s. In 2020, Ivory Coast was the world’s largest exporter of cocoa beans and had high levels of income for its region. In the 21st century, the Ivorian economy has been largely market-based, and it still relies heavily on agriculture, with smallholder cash-crop production being predominant.

Grading assistance is available by clicking the NGC logo above NGC offers expert opinions for grades and authenticity Please see our policies below for more info INTERNATIONAL BUYERS – ATTENTION!!! If there is still no response, we will send a third and final notice. If no response is made within 24 hours, we will start an unpaid item case. PRICING AND BEST OFFERS (1) Transparency and Accessibility For pricing, we try to use publicly accessible sites because we feel this allows for some standardization and transparency. The most common source we use is Krause’s World Coin Price Guide, but we also use guides where a country has a particularly developed or regularly updated site. Often these include coins of the Commonwealth Australia, Canada, New Zealand, etc. (2) Deviations From Standard Guides Occasionally, we will deviate from the price guides we normally use. However, we only do this where we find the coin is undervalued based off its scarcity, or the particular coin is unique due to a variety or eye appeal. (3) Best Offers YES, we will consider any reasonable offer. The opinion must come from an e-Bay authorized grading service Please note that any opinions listed are our opinions alone. Please use our photographs to develop your own evaluation of condition and quality. If you have any questions/need more information, please feel free to message us. The full cost of this service is eligible to become a voucher, but NGC must receive the coin within 90 days of the review. (3) Independence (No Affiliations) Please note that we are in no ways affiliated with NGC, Krause, or any other company. Although we prefer these companies, we neither receive compensation, nor provide funding for any expert review or use of pricing guides. For coins, we often list coins for sale as raw, but sometimes decide to send them in for grading. If you see a coin you like, feel free to make an offer! We are also receptive to requests to grade one of our coins. (1) Discrepancy and Errors Occasionally, our listings may include errors. When the title, description, and/or photographs conflict, you will receive the item(s) in the photographs. Please note that, unless otherwise stated, the presumption is that there is only one item. For listings with multiple items, we use the lot quantity feature. However, if there is any doubt, please send us a message. (2) Coin Photography We DO NOT use stock photography, even for graded coins. The item(s) you see in our photographs are the ones you will receive. We use 5000K cool white (daylight) lighting for all our photos because we feel this color most accurately reflects our coins. Please note that items may appear different in different lighting. The light’s warmth, intensity, and angle can change the look of the item, especially with reflective items such as coins and jewelry. Sometimes, we know we might have been able to take a better photo and we’re continuously seeking improvement with our photographs. If you have suggestions or comments, let us know! When time allows, we will honor requests for additional photos (3) Presentation and Editing We occasionally create collages for display purposes. We NEVER change the appearance of our coins unless it involves removing numeric grades from non-authorized companies. Such coins must be treated as raw – Adjectival grades are allowed. (4) Coin Conservation / Cleaning We DO NOT advocate cleaning/dipping coins because such coin lose their “mint state” status (in our opinion). Remember, even graded coins can later develop tell-tell signs of cleaning (chemical toning, dip residue, and the like). We also sometimes miss signs of a prior cleaning or dip, especially if we sell on immediately after we acquire a coin. If we do see signs of clear/obvious residue, we WILL treat with distilled water. For coins we treat with distilled water, we include a statement along the lines of “likely cleaned” in our listing. If you suspect any of our coins as cleaned, please message us. We will gladly inspect the coin further as time permits (5) Artificial and Natural Toning We NEVER artificially tone (AT) any of our coins. That is reserved for a group of “coin doctors” that live about 3 hours north of us in a region notorious for AT coins. However, we do accept that several factors may speed up toning, including, but not limited to, heat and humidity. This environment might occur from something as simple as improper storage to something as complex as war. We will state our opinion on whether a coin is artificially or naturally toned. If there are any questions on any of our toned coins, please message – We are happy to disclose either provenance or our opinion! Typically, we use First Class Packaging with tracking for most items. We ALWAYS provide tracking and NEVER use plain envelopes with regular stamps. However, some items are too heavy and bulky, even for a large flat-rate box. These services are provided free of charge. To assist, we can create personalized listings. We may be able to save you considerably. We don’t recommend this, but we have had buyers use this. It does work, but there is considerable risk. We do not tolerate illegal activity, so please do not ask us to commit fraud or any other criminal act. (1) Dedication to Customer Service We take pride in our customer service and are dedicated to ensuring that our customers stay happy. Even if something is out of our control, we will always try to help out. We do not tolerate attempts to defraud and will report such buyers immediately. (2) Comments and Feedback. We appreciate constructive feedback and strive to maintain a 100% feedback record. We seek 100% satisfaction and try to take every possible measure to ensure this. If you are dissatisfied in any way, please reach out to us first. We do listen someone said our layout was awkward, so hopefully this is better! Thank y’all for visiting!
