Gambia 10-BUTUTS (KM56) Double-spurred Francolin
The Double-spurred francolin is a member of the pheasant family found only in tropical west Africa. If you unknowingly come up on one, it will try to sneak away quietly, but if it has to it will explode into flight and make you jump in fright.
The reverse of this coin first appeared on KM10 (1971 and 1977). It was reissued with the coat of arms obverse one year only (1998).
