The dalasi is the official currency in Gambia since 1971, which replaced the West African Currency after its Independence in 1965. The name derives from “dala”, a nickname used for the West African French 5 franc bill, which has an allusion that is derived from “dollar”, on the other hand, “butut” is from “wolof butuut”, which means “small thing”. The Central Bank of Gambia assumed monetary emission and started the first coins issued in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 bututs and 1 dalasi. In 1998 a new coin’s series was introduced, but since 2019, bututs coins have disappeared due to low value, the 1 dalasi coin is the minimum monetary unit used nowadays.

The 1 Gambian butut coin front design features The National Coat of Arms (consist of two lions holding an axe and hoe, a shield with another pair of hoe and axe, crossed. Above the shield are the heraldic helmet and an oil palm. At the bottom is the national motto: “Progress – Peace – Prosperity”) and the issue date. The reverse coin design has three peanuts and the denomination in English and Arabic letters. This coin is part of the 1998 series. Its rim is plain, and its color is bronze.
