Loch Ness Monster
In folklore, the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, is an aquatic being which reputedly inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, and is often described as being large in size, with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings. The creature commonly appears in Western media where it manifests in a variety of ways. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a being from folklore without biological basis, explaining sightings as hoaxes, wishful thinking, and the misidentification of mundane objects.
The reverse of the coin features a beautiful design of the Loch Ness Monster over a background of the Scottish lake. All around the reverse, the inscriptions: “LOCH NESS MONSTER” – the name of the coin, “2017” – the year of issue and “1OZ AG.999” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver. The obverse of the coin features the Burkina Faso Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU BURKINA FASO” – the issue country and “1000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
