Liberia, 5 cents, 1971.





East Caribbean States, 2000 cents, Year 2000.  Design by Robert Elderton.



The two designs are far from being closely similar. However, they do contain similar pictorial elements.

I wonder whether Robert Elderton had seen the Liberian design at some time and it stuck in his memory. Whether he consciously or subconsciously remembered or referenced the Liberian design is something we cannot know.
