Libya, 100 dirhams, 1979.  Armed horseman.




From 1979 onward, until the end of Muammar Gaddafi's regime, this design appeared on the obverse of every Libyan coin.

The model for the design was created by Michael Hibbit. The Royal Mint records hold no information about who created this design.
Possibly it was Mr Hibbit, or possibly he was given sketches or a design to work from.
