Coin Story

This is the latest issue of the famous and rare series of numismatics dedicated to the protection of wildlife in the finest possible way: Precious coin creations composed of silver, gold and sparkling diamonds - eternalized to the extinction of endangered species in their natural habitat and vividly commemorate the fate of these creatures at risk. The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is a member of the Felidae family with a wide range in some parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, West Asia, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia to Siberia. Compared to other members of the Felidae, the leopard has relatively short legs and a long body with a large skull. It is similar in appearance to the jaguar, but is smaller and more slightly built. Its fur is marked with rosettes similar to those of the jaguar, but the leopard's rosettes are smaller and more densely packed, and do not usually have central spots as the jaguars do. Both leopards and jaguars that are melanistic are known as black panthers. A black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any Panthera species. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are leopards (Panthera pardus). Black panthers in the Americas are black jaguars (Panthera onca).

Reverse Design

The reverse features two of the most stunning creatures, a leopard and a black panther. Both animals offset themselves aginst the silver proof background, which features a scene in nature. The leopard, due to the gilding, and the black panther due to a darker finish. You will find 4 diamonds embedded into into their eyes.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Rwanda coat of arms. The name of the issuing authority ‘BANKI NKURU Y'U RWANDA’ appears along the top edge and the face value is indicated in the exergue.
