As the first release in the Endangered Species of the World Series, the African Lion and African Mandrill shine a light on the threats facing native species in Africa. The lion has long been targeted as a matter of sport, with poachers hunting the animals for their pelts or leading foreign hunters on expeditions that have depleted the animal’s population.

The African Mandrill is so popular in world history that even the great evolutionary scientist Charles Darwin took note, saying “no other member in the whole class of mammals is colored in so extraordinary a manner as the adult male mandrill.” The mandrill has a blue and red snout, with a golden/red beard that is unmistakable in the wild.

Each Endangered Species of the World Set includes two coins, and will eventually feature new releases for each of the seven continents on planet Earth. The coins individually contain 1.5 Troy ounces of .999 fine silver and represent animals threatened with extinction on different continents. The BU condition of these coins indicates a lack of wear and tear, but the presence of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks.

On the obverse of each coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II, captured in right-profile relief and set over a background of planet Earth, which itself is captured in its full glory with brilliant hues of natural colors.

The reverse of the African Lion coin includes the image of a young cub as it nuzzles in close with a male adult lion. The words “African Lion” are engraved above, with the Discovery Channel logo below. The African Mandrill coin has the image of a solitary male mandrill, with “African Mandrill” engraved above and the same lower engraving as the African Lion coin.
