Title: Michael Rizzello, Coin Designer

Of Italian parentage, Michael Gaspard Rizzello was born in London in 1926 and educated at the Oratory Central Boys' School, Chelsea. After military service in India and the Far East (1944-8), he studied at the Royal College of Art, where he won both the Drawing Prize and the Major Travelling Scholarship in Sculpture, which enabled him to study in France and Italy. In 1951 he was awarded the Prix de Rome for sculpture.

Rizzello then set up his studio in Hampstead, north London. Finding commissions hard to come by in austerity Britain, he began his career by making wax heads for Madame Tussauds. His first major commission was a full-size likeness of Lloyd George in bronze, which was unveiled in 1960 and stands in Cardiff's Cathay's park. From then on his order book was never empty. His portrait bust of Sir Thomas Beecham stands in London's Royal Opera House.

He then won commissions from the Royal Mint to make portraits for coins and medals, which was to remain an important part of his work for the rest of his life.

Mr Rizzello designed the Sierra Leone circulation set released in 1964. Above you can see the half cent from the series.

Also in the mid-1960s, Mr Rizzello created the reverse designs for the Gambia’s first independent coinage, dated 1966.
A collector coin  depicting a hippo, and with a face value of eight shillings, was released in 1970, but this was not designed by Mr Rizzello.

Mr Rizzello's mischievous crocodile is among my favourite modern designs.

In 1971, the Gambia switched to a decimal currency, in which one dalasi was equal to 100 bututs. Modified versions of the predecimal designs were arranged by Mr Rizzello, which were transferred to the new coins. He also designed the obverse portrait of President Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara.

Also in 1974, the Franklin Mint released a set of collector coins for Belize. Though the lower denominations look as though they belong to a circulation set, I understand that none of them ever circulated.

1c.   Swallow-tailed kite.
5c.   Fork-tailed flycatcher.
10c.  Long-tailed hermit bird.
25c.  Blue-crowned motmot.
50c.  Magnificent frigate bird.
$1.   Scarlet macaw.
$5.   Keel-billed toucan.
$10.  Great curassow.

Common obverse: Coat of arms.

The cent and the dollar from this set can be seen below.

In 1976 the newly independent Seychelles released a new series of coins depicting wildlife. The reverses were created by artist Suzanne Danielli, but the obverse portrait of President James Mancham was the work of Mr Rizzello. In June 1977, President Mancham was deposed in a coup by Prime Minister France-Albert René.

In 1979 the Turks and Caicos Islands issued a 10 crowns coin and a gold 100 crowns coin to mark the 10th anniversary of the Investiture of the Prince of Wales. 10 crowns is equivalent to 10 US dollars, the official currency on the islands, which are however a British possession.

Michael Rizzello produced several portraits of Prince Charles, always catching the more sombre and serious side of the prince.
