Medal: Ethiopia Haile Selassie 25th Anniversary of Coronation  1955
Medal: Ethiopia Haile Selassie 25th Anniversary of Coronation 1955

This medal, which comes in both gold and silver versions, celebrates the 25th anniversary of Haile Selassie's coronation as emperor of Ethiopia. The empress, Menen Asfaw, also known as Woizero Menen, appears on the medal with Selassie. Here are the stats:

GOLD: 14 grams, about 0.400 troy ounces
SILVER: 28 grams, about 0.900 troy ounces

The values of these medals depends on their base value (BV), or the value due to precious metal content. Look up the current value of gold or silver at kitco.com. It changes every day. Then multiply to find BV.

For instance, if gold is selling at $1200 US dollars per troy ounce, the BV of a gold medal is 0.400 x 1200 = $480 US dollars.

Approximate values of these medals are:

GOLD
circulated: BV + $50
fully uncirculated: BV + $200

SILVER
circulated: BV + $20
fully uncirculated: BV + $50

I have one of these. Both of my parents were civil servants, working for the Ethiopian Ministry of Education. The government handed out several of these in 1955 to the Civil Service. For them, it was free, and for me, it is absolutely uncirculated.
Wow, that is really cool. Thank you for sharing it with us! - CoinQuest (Todd)
