Description

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.

 

*Collectors Black Box also available - Sold Separately**

Africa’s Big 5 are the undisputed super stars of any safari.  The opportunity to see any of the Big 5 living wild and free in their natural habitats will be at the top of most travellers bucket list.  The term ‘the Big 5’ was originally created by game hunters to represent the most difficult game to hunt but thankfully when you go on a safari these days the only item you will be pointing at the magnificent animals is a camera. 

The third coin in the series features the Rhino.  These mammals have been around for millions of years and do have a prehistoric look about them.  They are easily recognisable by the horns on the forehead.   The largest land mammals after the elephant, rhinos can be very bold and have been seen grazing right next to lions.   Rhinos rank among the most endangered species on Earth.  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.
