Sierra Leone 10-LEONES (KM44) Bonga shad

I am going to call these Bonga fish, because they are the single most important fish for food in the country, and because a similar motif with confirmed Bonga appears on an earlier coin.

Mammy (or "Madam") Yoko was Queen of Kpaa Mende Seneghum (precursor to Sierra Leone) from 1878-1908.

This coin was issued one year only.
