Nepal 2-RUPEES (KM1188) Achham cattle

On the reverse is a farmer plowing his field with a pair of oxen. These are very likely Achham cattle, a breed of zebu that originated in Nepal. They are relatively small (as depicted on the coin) and suitable for the very steep terrain of most farms. Besides their small stature, their horns and pronounced zebu hump point to Achham and not water buffalo.

This coin is dated 2066 on the Nepalese calendar, which is equivalent to 2009.
