I am offering an vintage Ethiopian lion 10 cents Nickel Brass coin # 44.
The old monarchy used the crowned Lion of Judah as it's symbol because the emperors claimed descent from the biblical King Solomon. When the communists took over in 1977, they chose to replace it with an uncrowned lion (much as the Bulgarian lion and Polish eagle lost their crowns when the communists took over those places).
OBVERSE: lion head, modified design, whiskers over central date character.
REVERSE: Mountain Nyala.
Measurement: 23 mm or 7/8” in diameter.
Weight: 4.3 grams.
Condition: Fine, see photos.
As a coin collector I DO NOT clean any of my coins to preserve the original patina, if you wish to clean the coin/s I will leave it up to you.
I’m willing to drill a hole in the coin with NO extra cost if you needed for Jewelry Making.
The coin you see in the photo is the coin you get.
Fantastic for your jewelry, craft projects, Steampunk, collage art projects or just a great addition to your antique coins collection.
