Zaire 10-MAKUTA (KM7) Leopard

While the state was named "Zaire" (1971-1997) only six different circulating coins were issued, and only one of those featured an animal.

The image on the coin is the coat of arms of Zaire, which features a menacing leopard head, with an elephant tusk to the right. The same leopard head is featured on the current coat of arms (Democratic Republic of the Congo).
