Coin Highlights

  • 2020 2oz Proof Fine Silver High Relief $20 Coin
  • Issued on behalf of the Bank of Sierra Leone
  • Issue Limit: 500
  • Presented in a unique acrylic box with a sleeve certifying the authenticity


Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of the first coin in a brand new series of five coins featuring The Big Cats of the World. This stunning new series is issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, with these new coins being produced in magnificent High Relief which really helps to illustrate the true power of these animals and appeal of these cats.

The first coin in the series features the undisputed King of the Savannah – the Lion. The Lion is the world’s second-largest cat, with a male lion reaching up to 3.3 metres in length ( not including his tail) and weighing up to 25 kilos. These big cats are large and powerfully built with their long body, short legs and large head. The powerful lion has featured in many famous films such as, Born Free, The Chronicles of Narnia and perhaps most famously, The Lion King.

Our new coin depicts the head of a Lion with the word “LION” incused and the words “BIG CATS” raised. The denomination of $20 is displayed on the obverse of the coin. This coin will be presented in a unique acrylic presentation box with a certificate of authenticity included on the sleeve.
