São Tomé and Príncipe 1-DOBRA (KM-new) Giant Sunbird

In 2017, São Tomé and Príncipe underwent monetary reform, introducing the "Second Dobra" and a new set of circulating coins that all feature birds.

The Giant sunbird (aka São Tomé sunbird, Dreptes thomensis) is... a giant... sunbird? Don't really know much about this one, other than it is endemic to São Tomé, it is the only species in its genus, and it is threatened.
