About The Coin

This coin is the latest release in the Endangered Species coin series by New Zealand Mint.
In the early 20th century the Black Rhinoceros, Diceros bicornis, was the most plentiful of all Rhino species across the African continent. Between 1970 and 1992, their numbers were severely reduced by over 95% due to organised poaching and black market demand for their horns. By 1993, only 2,300 survived in the wild. Intensive anti-poaching efforts over recent years have had encouraging results, however, the increase in numbers is slow. In 2013, the IUCN estimated that approximately 5,055 Black Rhinoceros live in Eastern and Central Africa.

Reverse Design

This relief engraving captures a delightful vista of the African grasslands. In the foreground, an endangered Black Rhinoceros dips its head to drink from a water hole. The scene is mirrored in the finely engraved water. 

Obverse Design

This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
