Pobjoy Mint are thrilled to announce the final coin in the stunning collection of five featuring the Big Five African Animals. The concluding coin features the unpredictable Buffalo. Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, these magnificent coins are produced in High Relief that accentuate the capacity of these iconic five African Animals.
If you are planning a trip to Africa these iconic Big Five animals are the ones that come to mind quickly, they are magnificent in strength and presence and will capture the imagination of any Safari trip. 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 fifth and final coin in the series features the Buffalo, the only animal of the Big 5 not to be endangered. There are millions across the world, particularly of the water Buffalo variety used commonly for preparing land for farming purposes and carrying heavy loads.
The African Buffalo is a slightly different species to the domesticated Buffalo. Used to fight off predators such as Lions and Crocodiles, they can be wild and unpredictable. They are considered by many to be the most dangerous of the Big Five to game hunters, with wounded animals likely to ambush and attack the hunter.Show more
