Zimbabwe 10-DOLLARS (KM14) African Buffalo
The African Buffalo is a large wild bovine that is not related to domestic cattle. That is because it wants nothing to do with humans, and is unpredictable and powerful enough that it has never been domesticated.
African buffalo are responsible for several hundred deaths each year, earning them nicknames like "The Black Death" and "Widowmaker." They have very unusual horns: in adult males the base of the horns fuse together in a continuous shield called a boss that can resist rifle bullets.
This coin was minted in 2003 only.
