The Rwandan African Wildlife Series of silver and gold coins debuted in 2008, and have a new primary design element on the obverse each year. There is a commonly used design element in the series for the obverse which depicts the topographic outline of the African continent. In the lower-left field there is a new animal species depicted each year.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Rwandan Giraffe Coin is that outline of the African continent dominating the design field. To the bottom left you’ll find a mother giraffe walking the savannah with its young calf. There were once seven species of giraffe walking the planet, but today there is just one remaining species. The giraffe is the tallest terrestrial animal in the world today.
The reverse of all Silver Rwandan Giraffe Coins features the official seal of the nation of Rwanda. The country is located in east-central Africa and is one of the smallest by size and population in mainland Africa. Engravings on the reverse side of the coin feature the name of the Central Bank of Rwanda and the coin’s face value in Rwandan Francs, with the engraving text in Kinyarwanda, the principle tongue of the people of the nation.
Mayer Mint is a private German mint that strikes these coins. Formed in 1871, it is a family-owned operation that is currently in the fifth generation of family control.
