Coin Story

The symbol of the Three Wise Monkeys is associated with Japan, but probably came from China. The exact origin of the allegory is to date not clearly documented. See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil is a component of a Buddhist teaching and part of a popular belief in the land of the rising sun. Thereby Mizaru covers his eyes, Kikazaru his ears and Iwazaru his mouth.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts three monkeys crouching on a steel beam. The monkey on the left is covering his eyes, the one on the right his mouth and the one in the middle his ears. The monkeys and parts of the background are coloured (digital print on relief), and therefore, offset themselves against the silver proof background.

Obverse Design

The coin’s obverse shows the coat of arms of Tanzania, the name of the issuing authority, Tanzania, and the nominal value, 1000 shillings.


The Three Wise Monkeys silver coin comes in a specially designed case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
