Nepal 2 Paisa 1966 to 1978
These are neat coins from Nepal. The bird is on the 2 paisa, and there are other animals on other denominations. The symbols and dating system are very interesting, as explained on this CoinQuest page.
Values for the 2 paisa are low. They are modern coins made out of aluminum. A collector might pay as much as $10 US dollars for a fully uncirculated, nice-looking specimen like the one in our picture.
