There are few symbols that are more closely associated with the African continent than the lion. A massive, powerful beast, the lion is referred to as the “King of the Jungle” by many and is feared and respected in the wilds of Africa. The 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion coin is the first in the all new series of African lion coins from the nation of Burundi. You can own one of these coins from the early release range, complete with an MS70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
Lions are revered and feared around the globe as powerful animals that dominate the landscape of Africa. The 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion coin is legal tender in the Republic of Burundi and has a face value of 5,000 Francs. These coins carry an MS 70 grade from the NGC, meaning the coins were minted perfectly and have no visible abrasions, with attractive strikes on the mint and year marks.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion coin, a pair of lions can be seen resting on the Serengeti. Tall grass surrounds the lions, while a lone tree rises in the background. There is a sole engraving on this side that reads “African Lion 2015.” On the obverse side of the coin is an image of the head of a male lion. The depiction mirrors that of the official Seal of Burundi. Engravings include “Republic of Burundi 2015,” as well as the face value, weight, and purity of the coin. An engraving below the lion bears the state motto of “Unite-Travail-Progres.”
