Coin Story

Vulture is the name given to two groups of convergently evolved, usually scavenging birds of prey: the New World vultures, including the Californian and Andean Condors; and the Old World vultures, including the birds that are seen scavenging on carcasses of dead animals on African plains. Research has shown that some traditional Old World Vultures (including the Bearded Vulture) are not closely related to the others, which is why the vultures are to be subdivided into three taxa rather than two. New World vultures are found in North and South America; Old World vultures are found in Europe, Africa and Asia, meaning that between the two groups, vultures are found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a vulture descending over a carcass. The bird is depicted in color, while the rest of the coins (except for some grass) remains in silver. The coin features the name of the predator "The Vulture" and the latin expression "Gyps Vulvis". You will also find the year of issue on this side "2014".

Obverse Design

The obverse features the beautiful Coat of Arms of Tanzania. Inscriptions: "Tanzania' and the denomination "1000 Shillings".


The Predator Hunters - Vulture Gyps Vulvis silver coin comes encapsulated in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
