Hi
Here is the 25 poisha coin of Bangladesh that depicts the face of a Royal Bengal Tiger of Sundarbans. Sundarban is the world largest mangrove forest covering the southern part of Bangladesh and a part of India. Royal Bengal tiger lives there. It is now one of the endengered species of cats in the world. It is also symbol of Bangladesh cricket team.

This design on the mohur is historic for the fact that it was adopted as the symbol of Reserve Bank Of India in which the lion was replaced by the tiger!
