Sierra Leone, 10 leones, 1982-3.  Year of the Scout.



Barry Stanton produced this charming design for the international "Year of the Scout" series, issued in 1982 and 1983. The style reminds me of boys' comics of the 1950s and 1960s.

The activity was originally said to represent scouts tending to young coffee plants, but the Bank of Sierra Leone decided that it better represented two scouts tracking.

Sierra Leone, 100 leones, 1982-3.  Year of the Scout.



Barry Stanton also designed and modelled the reverse of this coin, from images of Scout emblems and badges supplied by the Bank of Sierra Leone.

The obverse portrait of Dr. Siaka Stevens was the work of Michael Rizzello.
