Nice!

Is it my imagination, or is the bull looking quite pleased while the elephant is looking rather annoyed?

In any case, your coin proves the old adage:
you can put a pearl necklace on an elephant, but it will still look like an elephant.

Thank you,

I agree with your assessment. The elephant looks fierce whilst the bull looks proud.

Here's a coin i acquired earlier this year as a companion piece to the coin i posted in reply #11 of this thread, although this one is quite a bit scarcer with the bull butting right (but without the impressive provenance)...

The portrait is a bit rough, but i think the bull is pretty cool.  ☺
