Burma 1-PYA (KM32) Chinthe

There are Chinthes (referred to as the 'Chinze' by most coin collectors due to a persistent error in Krause) all over Burma (now Myanmar), especially as the undefeatable guardians of Buddhist temples.

Before 1954, there were 4 pyas to a pe, 2 pe to a mu, 2 mu to a mat, and 5 mat to a kyat. Now there are 100 pyas to a kyat.

I believe this coin is dated 1955.
