Morocco 1-SANTIM (Y93)

Chub mackerel

The Atlantic coast of Morocco is nearly 3,000 km long, yet fishing is a relatively new activity, with the development of a small-scale fishery starting in 1930. Larger industrial fleets started in 1972 and grew rapidly until the end of the 20th century.

The second most caught fish in Morocco at the time this coin was minted was the Chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus), with tonnage caught peaking in 1984-86. [REF]

This FAO coin was minted one year only in 1987, which is also 1407 on the Islamic calendar.
