Guernsey 10-NEW PENCE (KM24) Guernsey Cow

When the militant monks sent by the Duke of Normandy came to Guernsey around 960, they brought the very best of French cattle. Over the centuries, they developed the Guernsey breed, which is known for its high-quality milk. The Guernsey Cow consumes 20-30% less food per gallon of milk compared to other larger breeds.

The Guernsey Cow first appeared on the 3-pence coin in 1956, and returned on the decimal 10-new pence coin in 1968. This coin was replaced by KM30 in 1977, which dropped the "new" designation. 

This coin was issued in 1968, 1970, and 1971.
