Poland 2-ZLOTE (Y878) European Bison

Poland continues its World Animal Series with this 2012 European Bison (Bison Bonasus) coin. It is one of two bison species, along with the American bison, and was hunted to extinction in the wild in the early 20th century. The European Bison (aka Wisent, European Wood Bison) has since been reintroduced from captivity in some European countries. Their status remains threatened.
