Uganda 100-SHILLINGS (KM67a) Ankole-Watusi Cow
The Ankole-Watusi is a breed of cattle native to Africa. They have huge, distinctive horns that can grow up to 1.8 m long. Their ability to survive on limited food and water has ensured centuries of survival in Africa.
In 1987, Uganda re-monetized with a new shilling and no smaller subdivisions. The smallest denomination is one shilling and the largest (circulating) is 500 shillings. This coin was first issued in 1998 in copper-nickel (KM67), then in 2007 it was switched to nickel-clad steel.
