Description

This is the second release in a series of coins dedicated to the African Lion, one of the most respected and largest of the big cat species roaming the African plains. These coins are one full troy ounce of .999 fine silver!
Known widely as the King of the Jungle, the African Lion is actually more comfortable in grasslands than in the jungle. They can live up to 15 years in the wild, and they live in groups called “prides.” For large cat species, the lion’s habit of staying in these larger family units, sometimes consisting of up to 15 animals, is unusual. Most of the large cat species live and hunt in pairs.
The design on this new issue features a male and female pair leading the way through the grassy plains, the natural habitat of the African Lion. Male and female African lions are easy to tell apart in that the male gender of the species grows a large, long haired mane around their neck, and the females do not.
