Amazonia: fantasy set
« on: September 21, 2012, 12:34:26 PM »
The fantasy purveyors have now chosen Amazonia.

"The lungs of the world":





"Amazonia is a fantasy nation that is made up of vast Amazon rain forest that encompasses much of Brazil as well as parts of Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.  A Chinese River Dolphin (Lipotes vexillifer) is on the 10 Reis.  It was probably meant to be the Amazon River Dolphin, but the coin designer depicted the wrong dolphin." Other animals: Black-Headed Spider Monkey; Parrot; Piranha; Ranitomeya amazonica (poison dart frog); Anaconda; Capybara; Keel-billed Toucan.
