Pobjoy Mint are delighted to announce the release of the first of a stunning 2019 series of coins featuring the Big Five African Animals. The first coin in the collection features the African Elephant.

The coin has been produced in stunning High Relief in 2oz Fine Silver and features the head of an Elephant styled as though it is an African mask. The special incused rim features an African pattern to continue the theme. This is the first coin in the series and a further four coins will be released featuring the remaining animals known as the ‘Big Five’.

Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, these new coins are being produced in magnificent High Relief which really shows the power of these animals and illustrate the appeal of these ‘famous five’. If you are planning a safari to Africa, the Big Five represents safari royalty – the Elephant, the Lion, the Leopard, the Rhino and the Buffalo.

Originally used as the term to describe the five most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot, this term has stuck and is now, thankfully, used to describe the five ‘must see’ animals if taking a safari as hunting falls out of favour.   These unique and incredible animals are impressive in their own right and if you are lucky enough to witness any of them in their natural habitat, it will remain with you for years to come.  Sadly these animals are now endangered species but hopefully, with more nature reserves being set up and the awareness of their plight being made more public, these magnificent animals will be protected for generations to come.
