You will be able to link directly to the respective Category or coin listings by clicking on the names.
The Giraffe is issued for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and carries their emblem on the obverse. Introduced in 2006, it depicts a leopard head, surrounded by an elephant tusk to the left and a spear to the right. The three words underneath it, Démocratie, Justice, Unité, are French for Democracy, Justice, & Unity. This huge country (world’s 11th largest) has had a tumultuous history, reaching a nadir under Belgian rule in the late 19th/early 20th centuries, when millions died under King Leopold II. It remains a problematic country, despite huge natural resources.
The Republic of Ghana Silver African Leopard Coins debuted in 2017 and offer new designs each year on the reverse face. This collection has proven immensely popular with investors. The 2017 coins sold out entirely and the 2018 release sold out in its first day of availability. With such demand, the 2019 coin isnt likely to last long either before its low mintage of 25,000 coins sells out.
Leopards are found in various regions of the world, but this series focuses on the specific subspecies of leopards found on the African continent. Though the African leopard has previously been found on rare occasions in North Africa, today it is most commonly found in sub-Saharan Africa. African leopards are found in both jungle and arid desert habitats in Africa.
“The Big Five” term originated when big game hunters visited the shores of Africa to shoot for trophies, and locals warned them about the five most dangerous animals in Africa: the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo.
The coins will be issued every month, with the first instalment in February 2019. The Second installation features the African Lion. The male lion symbolises royalty and strength in some African cultures, while the lioness represents femininity and motherhood.
The Victoria was built by the Basques, one of the most reputed shipbuilders at the time, at the shipyard in the Spanish city of Ondarroa. The ship was named after Santa Maria de la Victoria de Triana, the church where Magellan took an oath of allegiance to the Spanish King, Charles V. ‘s Heemskerck 127 years earlier, the Endeavour continued and rounded the Cape of Good Hope on 13 March 1771 to reach the English port of Dover on 12 July 1771.
The Second debut from Somalia, the African Wildlife Series “Leopard”. This new series will appear with an annually changing motive. This beautiful coin was struck from one ounce of pure silver in uncirculated quality. The reverse features a full image of a leopard cub playfully stroking its mothers face. In the background is a natural setting of a rocky landscape. The obverse displays the Somalian Coat of Arms with two Leopards on it. Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats. They are the fourth largest cats in the world after Tiger, Lion and Jaguar. No other big cat climbs so high and is as tall as the leopard. In order to protect his prey against predators, he often stores his prey on branch forks. The coins will be delivered in capsules. The mintage is limited to 30,000 pieces worldwide.
One of the mints most famous series is its Natura wildlife-themed proof coins, that have been issued since 1994. Only ever available in gold, the 2018 set headed into prehistory for the first time with a very nice five-coin Archosaurs set. It’s from this that the inspiration for the this new 2019 silver bullion coin has been drawn – specifically the small 1/20 oz gold coin. Depicting a small archosaur called Euparkeria.
The obverse is common to the whole series and quite outstanding. It depicts the fossilised skull, neck and shoulder of an Erythrosuchus africanus – at around 5 metres, the largest predator of its time. Inscribed here is the series title ‘RISE OF THE DINOSAURS’. the issuer ‘SOUTH AFRICA’, the date in Roman numerals ‘MMXIX’ and the sub-title, ‘ARCHOSAURIA’. The reverse face is even better. Euparkeria leaping for an insect and in full motion is hugely dynamic and far removed from the usual lumbering depiction of prehistoric life that we’re used to. It’s simple and different – a fine change from the usual wildlife bullion coin we’re all used to. The program name ‘NATURA’, the denomination ’25 RAND’, the specific coin title ‘EUPARKERIA’ and the composition ‘1oz Ag999’ are inscribed here and don’t infringe too much on the main image.
The coins will be issued every month, with the first instalment in February 2019. The first installation features the African elephant. From its versatile trunk and imposing tusks, to ears that flap forward as a sign of intimidation, the African elephant is a symbol of majestic strength and family unity. It is also the largest living land animal on earth, and one of our most intelligent species.
REVERSE: The reverse of the coin features two halves of the face of an Elephant.
OBVERSE: The obverse design of the elephant coin is the close-up of the majestic creature, with its ears flared and trunk and tusks dominant, together with the words ‘South Africa’ and ‘Big Five 2019’, as well as the country’s coat of arms.
The 2019 Krugerrand continues this legendary tradition in a new metal. Much like its gold sibling, the Silver Krugerrand offers investors a great way to own low-premium bullion. Whereas the 2017 Silver Krugerrand was marketed as a higher-premium collector coin, the 2019 as was the 2018 edition is priced at a slim margin over melt. Its market premium is comparable to the Silver Maple Leaf, Britannia, Kangaroo, and Philharmonic. Unlike the other sovereign coins in its class, however, the Krugerrand offers multi-generational demand and recognition. Gold investors have turned to the Krugerrand for over 50 years; now they can own this trusted coin in silver too.
The 2019 1 oz Silver Krugerrand also features its face value as part of the obverse design. The original reverse design of a leaping springbok antelope is also sharper and more defined thanks to the latest computer technology and laser etching techniques. The obverse of this prestigious 2019 silver coin features the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz.

The fourth release in this exciting 6-design series celebrates the Norse Dragon. Part dragon and part serpent, the Norse dragon (also called Nidhogg) was a terrifying beast.

Bent on civilization’s destruction, Nidhogg lived in the darkest whirlpool of the underworld, gnawing at the sacred tree of life that held the nine Nordic worlds of the cosmos together.
Nidhogg has earned a special place in pop culture in recent years, inspiring dragon characters in several popular video games such as the World of Warcraft. And Marvel fans may remember in the film Captain America:The First Avenger that it is Nidhogg’s eye that forms the button found in a carving of the sacred tree, which is pushed to reveal the Tesseract.

The legendary Empress Dowager Cixi had a quest to modernize China’s economy and the new Silver Chinese coin of 1889 was struck following the reorganization of Chinese weights and measures.

In 1191, after the capture of the city of Akkon, it came between two crusaders, Leopold V and the English king Richard the Lionheart, to quarrel over the spoils. In December 1192 Richard was arrested on the return journey to England in Erdberg, then a suburb of Vienna.
Finally, Leopold’s ransom demands were met. The immense amount of silver that had been forced out of the English people led to the creation
the legend of Robin Hood. Leopold used this silver treasure to found Wiener Neustadt and the first Vienna mint.
Unlike most other cities, Wiener Neustadt did not develop gradually over time, but was founded and constructed for strategic reasons on barren land at the easternmost tip of the Austrian Alps, south of Vienna. A fortified stronghold, it was designed to help secure the duchies of Austria and Styria against the Kingdom of Hungary.
Nikola Tesla did more to change the world than just about any other historical figure. He earned over 280 patents and contributed to countless inventions that were patented by other people.

Each coin celebrates the scientist and ones of his inventions. This Remote Control is part of a mintage of 50,000 pieces. It was struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver at the Serbian Mint. It will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
This series will run for several years with each coin commemorating some of Nikola Tesla’s greatest inventions. Nikola Tesla is one of the most brilliant minds in history and his inventions helped propel our future.

The first of three coins celebrating the 825th Anniversary of the Vienna Mint is dedicated to a key figure in the monetary history of Austria. A man whose legacy still continues today, Duke Leopold V would no doubt approve of the coin struck in his honour, as it not only contains one ounce of fine silver but is also a coveted collector piece.
In 1191, two crusaders, Duke Leopold V of Austria and King Richard ‘The Lionheart’ of England, quarrelled during the capture of the city of Acre. In December 1192, on his way home from the Holy Land, Richard was taken prisoner by Leopold on the outskirts of Vienna. Held in the Castle of Dürnstein, legend has it that Richard was located by his minstrel Blondel, who travelled from castle to castle singing a song that only he and his master knew. The huge ransom in silver, which Leopold managed to extort from the English in return for Richard’s release, was used to found the original Mint in Vienna in 1194. Leopold also used the silver to settle the land and build strongholds such as Wiener Neustadt. Leopold’s achievements helped Ostarrichi, as Austria was then known, to become a major European power. The coin shows the knight, crusader, adventurer and statesman dressed for battle.

“Germania” is the Latin term for Germany, from which the name “Germany” is used in English language today. Due to the connection with patriotic feelings, this word was present mainly in German literature and poetry. In ancient times the area inhabited by Germans east of the Rhine and north of the Danube rivers was called Germania. At that time its first personifications on coins and reliefs appeared, depicting a brave woman – the guardian of the nation.
Germania as a personification presents a beautiful woman with long, flowing hair, dressed in a wind-blown dress, with a victory symbolizing laurel wreath on her head. The Amazon wields an imperial sword (Reichsschwert) and a medieval shield with the image of a two-headed eagle, which is also the main motif of the coin’s reverse.
The two-headed eagle is a symbol appearing in Roman mythology associated with Janus – the god of all origins, guardian of doors, gates, passages and bridges, the patron of allied agreements and arrangements. Heads facing the opposite symbolize the past and the future. The lightning bolts held in the claws of an eagle are a divine attribute, symbolizing strength and the power of creation and destruction

Donald Duck is now 85 years old, and like Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday, is getting gold and silver bullion coins to mark the occasion. It’s a pretty standard release from the mint again, with just a 1oz 0.9999 gold and a 1oz 0.999 silver version on offer. Both carry the same basic design, and in our view, it’s a better one than the mouse received. A decent waste-up portrait of this ultra-iconic character takes centre stage, with an increasingly popular starburst pattern of radiating lines filling the background field. This works with varying degrees of success on many of today’s bullion coins – sometimes an enhancement, sometimes detrimental – but it fits in here because of the showbiz connections.
