Lesotho 2-LISENTE (KM17)


There are many breeds of cattle in Lesotho, and according to some reports there are far too many cows for the land to support (as much as five times too many). Lesotho herders move their cows to the highlands in the summer, and the lowlands in the winter.

This is the first version of the 2 lisente coin, minted between 1979 and 1989.
