    Haile Selassie I gold "Coronation" Medal EE 1923 (1930) MS63 NGC, Addis Ababa mint, Gill-S9. 40mm. 46.19gm. Designed in Vienna, this immense gold medal commemorating the coronation of Haile Selassie features his elaborately-detailed bust with the translated legend "The First Haile Selassie" surrounding while the reverse displays an aesthetically pleasing monogram with the star of the trinity within a trilobe and an encircling legend that reads "Ethiopia shall stretch forth her hands to God." This attractive large-format example displays few flaws, its mirrored fields unmarred by the usual contact marks. A weak strike in the central and lower sections of the reverse accounts for the grade.
