The Blue-crowned Motmot (or Momotus Momota) is over 40 cm long, but that is because of its very nice tail. It shares the long tail with most of other species of motmot and shares the rain forests of Belize with over 540 species of birds, most of them very colourful.
The first version of this coin is KM42 in copper-nickel. This is the silver version of that issue, and both were issued one-year only in 1974.
