Guatemala 10-CENTAVOS (KM239) Resplendent Quetzal

The Quetzal is Guatemala's unit of currency (100 centavos = 1 quetzal), and the Resplendent Quetzal is Guatemala's national bird.

This is the "original" species of Quetzal, first described in 1832, but today the name applies to five different species. A very colourful, largish bird, the Resplendent Quetzal is important in Mesoamerican mythologies.

This silver coin was minted between 1925 and 1949.
