Comments

The carousel, which features hand-carved horses and two chariots, was first constructed in 1918 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and was only the 45th of its kind to be made. It has previously operated at the Cincinnati Zoo and the Great America Theme Park in Santa Clara, California. In the year 2000, Linda and Tom Allen, Candy Allen-Whitney and Thomas Allen and the Alleniana Foundation purchased the carousel and generously donated it to the Woodland Park Zoo in the hope that generations of families would have the opportunity to experience a celebrated piece of American history.

This coin features the original logo of the zoo from before 2011.
