São Tomé and Príncipe 10-CENTIMOS (KM-new) Kingfisher

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 smallest denomination features a Kingfisher, and is likely the São Tomé Kingfisher which is endemic to the island (not found elsewhere). It is a sub-species of the Malachite kingfisher, one of four species of kingfisher found on the islands.
