MANATEE COINS 

   Denis Loring ferreted out a manatee coin with the help of 
   some E-Sylum readers.   He had been looking for one as 
   a gift to his wife.  Your editor consulted a local club 
   member (Corleen Chesonis) who collects images of 
   wildlife on coins.   She knew of the following issues: 

       * 1 cent from Guyana minted 1976-1980 (and maybe later) 
       * 1974 50 colones from Costa Rica - part of the Wildlife 
          Conservation series, non-circulating legal tender 

   Denis reports:  "Pete Smith not only found out about this one 
   [the Costa Rican piece], but got one for me at ANA!  I gave 
   it to Donna when she picked me up at the airport -- her grin 
   lit up the room!"
