Togo 2-FRANCS (KM5)

Rhim Gazelle

This coin is part of the French Colonial period of Togo. It features the favourite Rhim Gazelle and has been exposed to some harsh elements. But, it is really hard to find, so this example will have to do.

Rhim Gazelles are also known as Slender-horned Gazelles and Sand Gazelles. They are adapted to the desert and seriously threatened, being hunted for meat, sport (just for the hell of it), and decoration (dead animal heads hanging on walls).
