In 1977 Ethiopia issued a new coin series.

The designs were by Stuart Devlin.


The lion head design was used as the common obverse.

The other designs were socialist in nature.


The one exception was the mountain nyala on the 10 santeem coin.

The only issued design I have seen of a pangolin.

It appeared on the Zimbabwean $2 coin of 1997.

I do not know who designed it.
