Sri Lanka 10-RUPEES Monaragala

Peacock

I believe the subject of this circulating commemorative coin is the Dematamal Viharaya Buddist temple in Monaragala district. It dates to the 3rd or 2nd century BCE. The real star of the show is the peacock strutting through the foreground.

Thanks to Maria for donating this coin to the Coin Zoo!
