Animals on Coins


Recommended Posts

Anyone collecting coins for investment or numismatic reasons will sooner or later notice themes emerging in their collections. No two coin collections are the same. One noticeable theme in my gold and silver coin collection are animals. The use of animals on coins is as old as coins itself. 

I’ve got a rich variety of animal coins in my collection. I’ve got Pandas 🐼, Kangaroos 🦘, Koalas 🐨, Kookaburras 🐦, Somalian Elephants 🐘, Buffalos 🐃, Eagles 🦅 and Queen’s Beasts 👑. I would like to think the Mints which feature endangered species in particular on their coins are contributing some of their profits to preserving endangered animals.

Chards of Blackpool has compiled a very comprehensive but by no means exhaustive list of animal coins on an old website link. I would like to thank @ChardsCoinandBullionDealer for compiling the list.

As I don't see them in the list...Any one know Coins with bats? I would love to have some Ozs with them:)

Most  likely Chinese ones must have some as they are a lucky symbol for them. 

Opal lunar has a coin with a bat
