Tommy Sasseen, Coin Designer
« on: April 30, 2018, 08:04:41 PM »

Tommy Sasseen.



Tommy Sasseen was apprenticed and employed as die sinker at the South African Mint, Pretoria, from 1950 to 1974. I do not know whether Mr Sasseen is still alive.

Tommy Sasseen's initials appear on many coins of South Africa and Rhodesia. Sometimes he produced the designs, on other occasions he only modelled them or engraved them.
