The Llama is an important animal in the Andean countries. It is used as a beast of burden, and supplies milk, meat, hides, and wool.
This coin was issued from 1968 to 1980. In 1987, Bolivia underwent yet another period of monetary reform. At that time, it would take one million of these coins to equal one new Boliviano. That's some nasty inflation.
