1988 Mauritius Gold Bullion 1 Ounce Dodo Coin - Secondary Market

Discovered by the Portuguese in 1505, Mauritius was subsequently held by the Dutch, French, and British before independence was attained in 1968. It has one of Africa's highest per capita incomes.

Mauritius was formerly part of Isles de France et de Bourbon under French rule. Mauritius passed to British rule in 1814 and became independent in 1968.

Although there were British coins struck for Mauritius as early as 1822, these were undated, and had their legends (inscriptions) in French.

The first modern gold coinage was issued in 1971.
