Mambila Snake Currency | Nigeria


Our Mambila snake currency collection are distinctive currency pieces from the Mambila people of Nigeria. Made from iron ore that is found on the surface of the ground in many parts of Africa.

We love their bold and unique snake design which have a special meaning, as many African tribes view snakes are sacred and the killing or eating of them is forbidden as they are believed to be mediators between this world and the next.
