Uganda 1000-SHILLINGS (KM278) Crested Crane
The Crested Crane (Balearica regulorum gibbericeps) is the East African sub-species of the Grey Crowned Crane (Balearica regulorum). The other sub-species is the South African Crowned Crane (Balearica regulorum regulorum).
It is a national symbol of Uganda and also appears on the coat of arms and the flag.
Issued in 2012 and celebrating 50 years of independence, I believe this is Uganda's first circulating 1000 shilling coin.
