India 1-ANNA (KM3) Zebu Bull
Zebus (Bos taurus indicus) are a humped cattle (aka cow) of which there are about 75 known breeds. In India, known breeds make up less than 20% of the cattle population. The rest are cross-bred due to their sacred nature (they get free rein in many areas, and they don't get eaten).
Although the animal on this coin is sometimes identified as a Brahman Bull, that is not possible, since the Brahman breed was developed in the United States from cattle imported from India.
There are 4 pice to 1 anna, and 16 annas in a rupee.
