Andorra 1-CENTIM (KM177) Pyrenean chamois
The Pyrenean chamois is a goat antelope that lives in the Pyrenees mountains of Andorra. As its name says, its skin was used to make chamois leather which was so popular that it -- and other chamois species -- was almost hunted to extinction. The population has since recovered and is now at a healthy size.
Once upon a time I thought that this was a regular circulating coin. However, apparently it is a non-circulating issue. It was minted in 2002 only.
