This is a very unique Hand Foraged Iron Currency from Cameroon. While implements such as hoes, knives and other implements serve a utilitarian function, in some cases these objects were also used as currency. Fabricated from copper, bronze, iron and brass, these objects constitute some of the most dramatic and varied of African currency forms. Iron money came in the shape of a heart, spade, paddle, teardrop, trowel, anchor or blade. In fact, the shapes began to overlap the objects classified as knives or blades. Implement money varied in value, but most often it was used as bride wealth. Bride wealth is the exchange of currency or valuable goods and services to acknowledge all that the bride brings to her husband and his family, including the hope of descendants. This form of money was also frequently reformed into other objects or implements as needed. A lovely item to add to your collection or home.
