Mozambique 50-METICAIS (KM119) Leopard
Doesn't the leopard on this coin look slightly pissed off? I think she does, probably because cats don't like being made to sit for a portrait.
Mozambique's currency was changed from Escudos (as a Portuguese colony) to the Metica in 1975 when the republic was formed. The first monetary reform came in 1980, and the unit of currency was changed to the "Metical" (plural Meticais).
