Kazakhstan 50-TENGE (KM329) Mouflon

Non-circulating coin

Mouflon (Ovis orientalis) are a subspecies group of wild sheep and are thought to be one of the two ancestors of all modern domestic sheep.

This particular Kazakh mouflon is called a Ustyurt Mountain Sheep (Ovis orientalis cycloceros) which may not actually exist (as a sub-species, that is). There is dispute about the subspecies of Mouflon, but MSW3 only recognizes five of them, and O. o. cycloceros is not one. So, let's stick with Mouflon.

Thanks to Maria for gifting this coin!
