Description

Pobjoy Mint are thrilled to announce the release of the The African Rhinoceros in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel as part of the stunning collection of the Big Five African Animals.

After recent success from the immensely popular Big Five series in High Relief 2oz Silver, the breathtaking set is being re-released in Cupro Nickel. Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, this coin in the series features the powerful Rhino, an animal that has roamed the Earth for millions of years. The coin is styled as though it is an African mask, with a special incused rim in order to continue the theme of the collection. 

This coin can be purchased individually or as part of a set along with the other four animals of the Big Five.

Rhinos are the second largest land mammals after Elephants, and are very bold in their natures and so are often seen grazing right next to lions. They are often thought to have a prehistoric look to them and are easily recognisable by the horns on their foreheads. 

Yet, Rhinos rank among the most endangered species on Earth despite existing for millions of years. Valued for their horns they face a dire threat from poaching which means their numbers are decreasing rapidly and they face a serious threat of extinction.

Thankfully when you go on a safari these days, the only item that will be pointing at these magnificent animals is a camera.
