The designs of two new coins


The designs of two new coins, which will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the 1763 Berbice Slave Rebellion and the 175th anniversary of the Arrival of Indentured Immigrants, were yesterday revealed at a ceremony at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport. Courtney Douglas designed the 175th anniversary coin and Adrian Juman designed the 250th anniversary coin for which they each won $250,000. The ministry had invited designs last year and it received five entries. The Bank of Guyana will undertake the minting of the coins which will be released later this year, Culture Minister Dr Frank Anthony said.
