Yes indeed !  with no doubt a very rare animal in Yazd area, that looks hilarious from its presence on a coin  :D

In any case, it's a very good coin, showing designs on both faces, which allow its identification despite a mintname out of flan.

Thank you Saro.
Maybe the diecutter has been inspired by his winter holidays in Laponia?  8)
