WHAT CAN I HELP YOU FIND?

Among other available items are two Haile Selassie I Coronation presentation pieces personally awarded by His Imperial Majesty. They are solid gold, high quality gold (estimated at 22k) and weigh 15.2 grams (about half a Troy ounce) and a massive 47 grams (the largest made, 40mm, and 1 1/2 Troy ounces!).

That's true, they aren't cheap but they are reasonable considering their gold content and historic nature. These are the same kind of presentation pieces handed out selective to important personages met by Haile Selassie I during his world travels. Several such as these were personally presented to members of the Rastafari community while His Imperial Majesty visited Jamaica in April, 1966.

I guess you're not talking about the gold presentation medals. When were you last in Addis?

Sounds like you built up a golden cow of sorts..
The same cow Moses came upon after descending the Holy Mtn..

Bun out false idols!!

OK.. so I was inspired by McCarty on this one.. :-)

jahmeek if the only value to those were that they were gold, they would not be sold on any street anywhere cheap, not at the price gold is commanding. the fact they are gold and awarded by HIM make them nearly priceless. stop embarrassing yourself star.

Thanks for your appropriate input JB.

I'm guessing Jahmeek is referring to some of the other Ethiopian medals I'm offering, not the gold presentation medals of Emperor Haile Selassie I. I'm wondering when he was last in Addis and searching for Royal Ethiopian medals. All of my people there say that the medal supply has dried up in the last several years, to the extent that one of my fellow ebayers (who made a trip or two every year just to buy items to resell to I and I Rastafari) has stopped going, saying there's nothing left there that's worth buying for resale any more.

Good to hear from you Jahmeek!

In terms of wearable medals with ribbons, they did use to me more available in Addis Ababa. Now, that is seemingly over with few exceptions.

These gold presentation pieces are gold, 22k gold, and as I said His Imperial Majesty used to give these out to people he met and felt an important link to.

My two are still available but must be sold very soon.

HAPPY 80'TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CORONATION TODAY!

May JAH BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL.

Jim

Nyahbinghi at Ras Michael's today, 2pm-7pm, 1034 93rd Street, Los Angeles.

Hi Al,

I guess I could have put that up before, but I was trying to be a little discrete.

The 1 at 15.2 grams has one just like it on ebay now, same weight, that they are asking 850 for. I can take 750 for mine. The other much larger and heavier one is even more of a museum piece, both because of it's size (the largest one made) the weight (the heaviest one made) and condition, nearly flawless. My asking price on that one is 2800, but I may well have to accept a bit less.

Please make offers you can follow up on immediately, and I'll do what I can to serve your interests.

You may email me directly at rastafarilives@gmail.com . I'm leaving for a Nyahbinghi at Ras Michael's house.

Thanks and blessings,

Jim

Jim,
I also have the medal from the 25th anniversary of 1941, but I too am missing the ribbon portion. I was hoping you had it. Anyway about how much each for those non-precious medals on that page?

No flags for sale presently but I was finally able to acquire one large flag of Haile Selassie I, with longer tails on the top and bottom right than in the middle, with the Collar rank of the Order of King Solomon's Seal and the badge both hand embroidered on each side independent of the other. I'll post a pic on facebook of it soon. Jah bless. What else can I help you find?

Both HAILE SELASSIE I gold medal auctions end shortly on ebay:

Gold Coronation and Presentation medal description borrowed from Dennis Gill's great book COINAGE OF ETHIOPIA...:

Front: Crowned, three quarter facing bust of Haile Selassie, dated "(EE)1923" at base of the bust. Legend surrounding "Haile Selassie the First : King of Kings of Ethiopia." Back: Throne of Solomon between two angels, one holding a... Read more sword and scales of justice, the other a sword and a sprig. A six pointed star is depicted on the throne with an open Bible and Ark of the Covenant symbolized above. In the foreground is a crowned Lion passant facing right, carrying standard. Below in small lettering"The Lion of the Tribe of Judah hath Conquered". The above is framed in a crowned, draped canopy. There are a few sprigs above the coat of arms and below it is the legend "Ethiopia Shall Stretch Forth Her Hands to God". Struck in Addis Ababa.

Jah bless you all!
