Here's a Rhodesia 1964 proof set which I bought by mail from the Rhodesian government in 1964:

The proof sets were made by the South African Mint in Pretoria. South Africa was one of the few countries which had diplomatic relations with Rhodesia.

The coin obverses had Queen Elizabeth II on them.

    Nyasaland became Malawi, Northern Rhodesia became Zambia, and Rhodesia (Southern) eventually Zimbabwe

    I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
    I give away money. I collect money.
    I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.
