Located in Western Africa, the Republic of Cameroon was created in 1961 by the unification of two former colonies, one British and one French. It is often referred to as Africa in Miniature for being a multi ethnic country of French and English speaking people, Muslims and Christians, and a geographically diverse territory of rain forest, desert plains, mountains and high plateau. Cameroon was named after Rio de Camarões (standing for the River of Prawns), the name given to River Wouri by Portuguese explorers in the 15th century.

Famous for producing coffee, cocoa, cotton, bananas and oilseeds, this African country also issues modern commemorative coins.
