The Central Bank of West African States (French: Banque Centrale des États de l'Afrique de l'Ouest, BCEAO) is a central bank serving the eight west African countries which share the common West African CFA franc currency and comprise the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA):

Benin
Burkina Faso
Guinea-Bissau
Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire)
Mali
Niger
Senegal
Togo

A stylized sawfish was chosen by the The Central Bank of the West African States (BCEAO) to appear on coins and banknotes of the CFA currency. This was due to the mythological value representing fecundity and prosperity. The image takes its form from an Akan and Baoule bronze weight used for exchanges in the commercial trade of gold powder

back: agriculture produce including cash crops like peanuts, sorghum, cotton, rice (paddy), cassava, coffee, and cacao.

Lettering:
UNION MONETAIRE OUEST-AFRICAINE
