An American designer, only western numerals and script, western style symbolism (reminds me to modern American action films on wars).

Maybe an American collector-coins-mint?

Has anybody been in Eritrea since 1997 and can provide info about the local change money?

Have not been there, but I do think those are circulating coins. The website of the Eritrean embassy in Stockholm for example http://eritrean-embassy.se/invest-in-eritrea/banking-in-eritrea/ mentions the denominations and designs too, in the section "The national currency of Eritrea" on that page ...

Does anyone know where this nickel-clad steel series of 1, 5, 10 25, 50 and 100 cents was minted

According to Weltmünzkatalog 1901-2000 by Dr. Gerhard Schön, the 1,5,10,25 and 50 cents coins were minted at The Royal Mint, the 100 cents coin was minted at the Birmingham Mint.

eurocoin is right, 50c was probably also minted in Birmingham as specimens are present on the market.
