The reverse is a rendition of the Lion of Judah, a symbol of the Jewish tribe of Judah which appeared commonly on Ethiopian heraldry. In the Ethiopian context, the use of the symbol represents the claimed descendance of the Ethiopian monarchs from King Solomon (970–931 BC) of the Judaic House of David. Inscribed along the upper periphery of the piece is the Amharic caption, which translates as “Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah”. Value below.
The observe is showing the bust of a bearded Haile Selassie in coronation robes and crown. Inscribed counterclockwise along the periphery of the first piece is the Amharic caption, which translates as “Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia”. The legend is divided at the top by the cross on the king’s crown. The five-digit Ethiopian date (EE) of minting appears in Ge’ez (Ethiopic) numerals at the bottom of the piece, arched counterclockwise along the rim. Value in Amharic below.
