São Tomé and Príncipe 100-DOBRAS (KM87) bird
There are many endemic bird species in St. Thomas & Prince, but after looking at many of them while scouring the net, I can't figure out what kind of bird this is. It is very small, and could possibly be the same bird that appears on the 250 dobros coin, except that bird is sitting in some kind of fruit tree.
This FAO coin was minted in 1997 only as part of a larger denomination coin set to deal with rampant inflation. The reverse legend is a Portuguese translation of the FAO slogan "Grow More Food."
