This is a small one-cent piece from Ethiopia, dated 1936 EE (Ethiopian Era). That would translate as 1944 A.D., although this date was “frozen” and it was used on coins until 1975. The obverse depicts Haile Selassie I, the last of the Solomonic emperors who, according to legend, ruled Ethiopia more-or-less continuously since the time of King Solomon. He was booted out by the military in the 70s. I think it’s a pretty little coin. Anyway, I have a question. The Krause collector’s guide that I’m using lists these coins as having a total mintage of 20,000. This seems like a very small amount for a small denomination coin that was minted over three decades. I suspect this is an error. Does anyone have any resource that list another mintage total for this coin? I’d appreciate your input.
