Belgium 1-CENTIME (KM76) Lion

The Zoo Keeper is pretty certain there are no lions running around Belgium, yet here it is on a Belgium coin. The same lion, with its paw resting on a pair of stone tablets appears on several coins of Belgium. This is a heraldic lion -- the Lion of Belgium -- and the tablets represent the 1832 constitution of Belgium.
