This coin depicts the inscription of Lord Shiva along with the ardent goat in a semi – standing position inclining on the sacrosanct god. The goat is normally depicted on other coins standing on all its four legs but here it is sitting on its hind legs with its frontal legs caressing the revered god body trying to connect to the soul. The coin shows the goat being obsequious to the deity leaning on the lord showering its loyalty and fondness trying to touch the lord to garner its attention. The coin manifests that an animal’s love is a universal impulse and is in its purest form without any avarice and materialism.
