The Silver Elephant Coin is one of the most fascinating coins in the African Wildlife Coin Series, which commemorates the characteristic fauna of Africa. Minted by the Das Bayerisches Hauptmünzamt Mint in Munich, Germany, the Silver Elephant coins were first issued in 2004. With a denomination of 100 shillings, the German-manufactured 1 oz Silver Elephant Coin has begun to attract attention from coin collectors all over the world.
This is the Third coin of the new African Lunar series series released by the BH Mayer’s Mint, packaged in individual plastic wrapping.
The reverse feature is a unique take on the Pig symbol which represents 2019 in the Chinese lunar calendar, as the sow and her piglets are beautifully portrayed in mosaic form, giving the feature a distinct African flare. Also on the reverse, the Chinese character for ‘PIG’, along with the coin title, the year of issue, the words ‘lunar ounce,’ and details of weight purity and metal content.
The obverse features the official seal of Rwanda, along with the words, ‘National Bank of Rwanda’, written in Kinyarwandan, which is the official language of Rwanda. Also on the obverse, the coin’s unique denominational value, in numerical form and written in Kinyarwandan.
The official currency of land-locked, East African country, Rwanda is the Rwandan franc, which is subdivided into 100 centimes.
The Australian Kookaburra 1 ounce Silver Bullion Coin Famous for its cackling laugh, the native bird is pictured standing on a sunken tree branch with the setting sun reflected on a rippling waterway. The sixth image of the Queen to appear on Australian coins since Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 1952, she faces right in keeping with tradition.
The Year of the Pig is the twelfth animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. These coins are struck at the Perth Mint in Australia with a purity of 999 silver. In Chinese astrology the animal signs assigned by year represent what others perceive you as being or how you present yourself. It is a common misconception that the animals assigned by year are the only signs and many western descriptions of Chinese astrology draw solely on this system. In fact, there are also animal signs assigned by month (called inner animals), by day (called true animals) and hours (called secret animals).
The 2019 Unicorn of Scotland is the Fourth of 10 designs depicting the Queens Beasts from the background of Her Majesty The Queens coronation, where ten heraldic beasts stood guard, reimagined and Beautifully designed by Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark. Jody also created the latest definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretations of the Unicorn of Scotland will be the Fourth coin to be released.
Jody also created the latest definitive coinage portrait of The Queen to appear on United Kingdom coins. His bold interpretations of the Welsh Red Dragon will be the third coin to be released.
The 2019 UK Queen’s Beasts Falcon of the Plantaganets 2oz Silver Coin is the sixth release from the exclusive Royal Mint bullion range, featuring an original reverse design. The coin’s reverse features a stylised version of the Falcon of the Plantaganets, holding a shield depicting a falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The year-date and ‘Falcon of the Plantaganets’ also feature.
This two ounce silver bullion coin is the sixth addition to The Queen’s Beasts bullion range. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.
The 2019 UK Lunar Pig 1oz Silver Coin is the sixth coin in the Royal Mint’s Shēngxiào Collection in celebration of the Year of the Pig, the last of the 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar. The reverse design features a mother pig, nursing her piglets against a countryside night sky backdrop, along with the inscription ‘Year of the Pig 2019’. Also detailed upon this side of the coin is the weight and fineness.
The obverse design depicts the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on a guilloche background design, and the monetary denomination of £2.
The design perfectly captures the traits associated with people born in the Year of the Pig. The country house, with smoke coming from the warm fire, set beneath a drowsy night sky, suggests calmness. While the pig, with her children, symbolises family, loyalty and generosity.
