Ethiopia 10-CENTS (KM45.1) Mountain Nyala / Lion
This is one of those coins you have to hold in your hand to really appreciate! On the obverse we have the wonderfully ferocious Ethiopian lion, and on the reverse is a grazing Mountain Nyala. Perhaps this is the lion's dinner, but not in the Coin Zoo. (This is a family show, after all.) The Mountain Nyala is an endangered antelope species. It is found only in a very small area in the middle of Ethiopia.
