The African leopard is a unique animal in that it displays great variance in its coat color depending upon its location and habitat on the African continent. Specimens of the creature have been found with colors ranging from pale yellow to a deep gold, as well as tawny combinations and even black. Male leopards weight as much as 200 lbs., but typically average around 130 lbs.
In the latest design in the Silver African Leopard Series from Scottsdale Mint, the unique practice of lardering by the leopard is featured. To avoid losing any of its kill to competing predators such as the African lion or scavengers like the hyena, leopards bring their kills high into trees and leave them in the split of branches. This allows the leopard to feast on the kill for several days without competition.
On the reverse side of 2018 1 oz Silver Republic of Ghana African Leopard Coins, you’ll find a leopard dragging its kill of an antelope high into the trees. Engravings on this side are intricate and feature a dense tree line visible in the background, along with engravings of “African Leopard,” “2018,” and “1 Ounce 999 Silver.”
The obverse face of 2018 1 oz Silver African Leopard Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a fourth-generation design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. The background on this side includes the unique patterned design of the leopard’s spots behind the Queen’s portrait.
These 2018 1 oz Silver Republic of Ghana African Leopard Coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins arrive inside of protective capsules for individual coins, sealed sheets of five, or boxes of 125 coins.
