Eritrea 5-CENTS (KM44) Leopard
Leopards are one of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. Cats can either roar or purr, but not both. Only the big cats like the leopard can roar, so if you ever try to pet one, don't expect it to start purring.
This coin was minted in 1997 only. The 1991 date on the reverse refers to the year the "de facto" state was formed.
