Strength and fear breed power in the human society. The same can be said of the animal world, where the African lion enjoys great power on the plains of the Serengeti through its strong frame and the fear it strikes in the hearts of animals and people alike. The government of Burundi has released the first ever African lion coin series with the 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion Coins. Today, you can own these coins in brilliant, uncirculated condition through Silver.com. Every coin has been struck with .999 pure silver and weighs 1 troy ounce.
Lions have dominated the Serengeti of Africa for centuries. The creatures play a pivotal role in the food chain and are revered around the world for their power and majesty. The government of Burundi uses new imagery on the 2015 coin series to pay homage to a creature that is easily associated with the wild lands of Africa.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion coin is the image of a lion pair resting on the Serengeti. The tall grass of the plains surrounds the pair, as a lone tree can be seen rising toward the sky in the background. Engravings on this side include “African Lion 2015.” On the obverse side, the head of a male lion is borrowed from the official Seal of Burundi for the design. The lion’s head is just above the official state motto “Unite-Travail-Progres.” Additional engravings include “Republic of Burundi 2015” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
The government of Burundi mints all 2015 1 oz Silver Burundi African Lion coins, which are considered legal tender in that nation. Silver.com is dedicated to happy customers.
