Nagorno-Karabakh 1-DRAM (KM29) Persian Leopard
The Persian Leopard (Panthera pardus ciscaucasica) is the largest leopard subspecies and is endangered throughout its range.
I originally thought these were "fantasy" coins, created by Armenia as a political move to help gain recognition for the NKR (which later became the Republic of Artsakh). However, it seems that the Artsakh dram is offiical legal tender within the republic, although, the people mainly use the Armenian dram.
