The African Wildlife Series is a collection of silver coins which commemorate the distinctive fauna found throughout the African continent. These coins are minted in Munich, Germany at the Das Bayerisches Hauptmunzamt Mint. The collection features a variety of African animals, such as the lion and elephant. They typically appear in weights of 1 oz with a 100 shilling denomination.
History of the African Wildlife Series
The African Wildlife Collection was first introduced in 2004. The first animal to be featured on these coins was the Somalian Elephant. By 2008, the mint introduced the Rwandan Wildlife Series, which has become quite popular. The Congo Silverback Gorilla also made an appearance, along with the Lion of Burundi. These coins are considered legal tender in some areas, while in others their status is uncertain. Nevertheless, these coins have become sought after items by collectors around the world.
