For 2008 Pobjoy Mint released on behalf of the Bank of Sierra Leone, a superb series of coins depicting some of Africa’s Nocturnal Animals, to emphasize their desire to preserve the irreplaceable wildlife which forms a valuable part of their heritage.

This collector's coin features the Duiker – The name ‘duiker’ comes from the Afrikaans word for diver and refers to how these small antelopes practice diving into tangles of shrubbery.  Duikers are recognised by their low-slung bodies, slender legs, wedge-shaped heads topped by a crest of long hair and their relatively large eyes.  There are 17 species of duiker and the Jentink’s duiker of Sierra Leone is also classified as Endangered.

In the surround of the coins, the border contains a design of stylised African animals and the obverse of each coin carries the Coat of Arms of Sierra Leone. Since all of these animals are known for their night vision, the coins are available in Unc. Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver but with a special blackened effect.  The Proof Sterling Silver versions also have Diamonds inserted into the eyes of the animals and are struck four times to attain the highest quality ‘proof’ finish.
