Kenya 20-SHILLINGS (KM-new) Elephant
In 2018 Kenya released a new circulating coin family featuring their local wildlife.
The 20 shilling coin features the African bush elephant, the largest living land animal. Found across 37 African countries, the African bush elephant is listed as a vulnerable species, mostly due to habitat loss, as well as poaching. Males are up to 4 m tall at the shoulder and can weigh over 10 tonnes.
Thanks to Maria for donating the Kenya coin family to the Zoo!
