It's hard to find it finer. The Pesa and shows on the obverse a laurel wreath and the Arabic legend 'Company of Germany'. On its reverse the imperial eagle is depicted. An Indian Rupee, the most important coastal currency, equated to 64 Pesa. Pesa were issued in high numbers (in 1892 alone, the emission�s last year, 27.541.389 were manufactured). The colony was established by treaties with local chiefs in 1884. It became a protectorate in 1891 and a full colony in 1897. The territory was established in what then was known as Tanganyika (Tanzania). The colony was lost after WWI.
