Zimbabwe 10-CENTS (KM3) Zimbabwe Bird
The Zimbabwe Bird is a national symbol of Zimbabwe. It appears on coins, banknotes, the flag, and the national crest. It comes from stone carvings on walls and monoliths throughout the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, an ancient city built starting around 400 CE up to the fifteenth century. These massive ruins cover over seven square kilometres and are the largest ancient stone ruins south of the Sahara.
This coin was minted between 1980 and 1999. The reverse features a Baobab tree.
