Nepal 10-PAISA (KM766)


That is no doubt a sacred Hindu cow on the coin, since Hinduism is the majority religion in Nepal. I believe the obverse side of the coin depicts a lotus flower. Maybe. Since this is an FAO coin (issued one year only in 1971), it must depict food: The cow on the reverse for milk, and the lotus because the flower, seeds, young leaves, and roots are all edible.
