Chile 2-CENTESIMOS (KM193) Andean Condor
The Andean Condor is a new-world vulture and are related to storks, but not closely related to old-world vultures (which include hawks and eagles). It is difficult to not call them ugly, but they have a good reason for looking that way. The Andean Condor is huge, with male wingspans up to 3 m (10 feet). The Andean Condor is a national symbol of Chile.
Part of the reform coinage of the 1960s and early 1970s, this piece is minted in gorgeous aluminum-bronze.
