Tommy Sasseen also designed a set of collector coins for Swaziland, dated 1968, in order to celebrate the country's independence.

100 cents were equal to 1 luhlanga. The 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents and 1 luhlanga coins were all made of silver.

Image source Bezt Coins.



I am grateful to Bezt Coins for allowing me to show this screen shot from their web site. It is very difficult to find information about Mr Sasseen. Below is a link to the web page. It is based in South Africa and may take a long time to load, but it is well worth waiting for. There are many members of this site who are interested in tokens, and they will see a token from Mr Sasseen's father's business.

Great stuff to have collected and posted this information here! Thank you. Since mr. Sasseen was born in 1932, he should be dead on average, but may well be alive in spite of the statistics ;)
