South Africa 2-RAND (KM139) Greater Kudu
The Greater Kudu is a woodland antelope found in eastern and southern Africa. The males have horns that twist two-and-a-half times. These horns are often used to make shofars, a Jewish ritual horn blown at Rosh Hashanah. Greater Kudus have a bad habit of stopping to look behind them after they run for cover, which makes them an easy target for hunters.
This coin was issued from 1989 to 1995.
