Tilapia is the common name for nearly 100 species of cichlid fish. They are fresh water fish, and tilapia farming is big in Uganda.
In 1987, Uganda re-monetized with a new shilling and no smaller subdivisions. The smallest denomination is one shilling and the largest (circulating) is 500 shillings. This coin was first issued in 1998 in copper-nickel (KM68), then in 2007 it was switched to nickel-clad steel.
