The Peruvian coat of arms features a shield with three items. The bottom section depicts a cornucopia with coins coming out of it. This is symbolic of the nationís mineral wealth. The top right section shows a cinchona tree, from which quinine (a drug that helps with Malaria) comes from. The top left section of the Peruvian coat of arms shows a relative of the llama known as a vicuna.
The design dates back to the 1820s, but the Peruvian coat of arms was last changed in 1950.
