Liberia 1975 sketches.jpg

Some more Royal Mint scans from the National Archives being presented on the internet for the first time.

(All this running back and forth to the National Archives - I'm worn out, I am).

I've edited a couple of the designs to make it a little harder, but it will be a lot easier than Cyprus was, I'm sure!


Cowrie shells suggest Ghana...? - but could they be cocoa beans....


Ghana - no, it's not Ghana.


Is that some sort of icycle on the 50 cents?


So now you're thinking outside the box and are going to tell me it's Greenland.  ::)


Hotter than Greenland, I suppose. Guess it is some African country, and one that has or had dollars and cents. Liberia maybe?



Liberia  Obverse.jpg

Liberia, yes, of course!

N.B. See the top of the thread for the unedited pics.


Who was the designer of these sketches?


Louis Osman.
