At a quick glance, the Mandrill is a species of monkey that is often mistaken for a baboon. Both monkeys are classified within the broad Old World monkey family that contains a total of 138 species of monkeys. However, the Mandrill and baboon only bear superficial resemblances to one another. The most obvious of those is the size and shape of the head and face. The Mandrill is, in reality, in its own genus as one of two species of Mandrillus, the other being the drill.
All of the 2020 1 oz Silver Cameroon Mandrill Coins listed here at Silver.com come with individual or multiple packaging options. Single coins will ship inside of protective plastic capsules from the mint, while multiples of five are available inside of Scottsdale Mint sealed skinboards.

A Mandrill face is the focus of the obverse design of the 2020 Silver Cameroon Mandrill Coin. The design shows the face of the beast as it gazes beyond the field of view of the coin. The males in the Mandrill species are some of the most unique in the world in that they elongated muzzle of the male comes with distinctive colorizations, making Mandrill one of the most brilliantly colored mammals in the natural world. The background field of the design showcases the beautiful landscapes of Cameroon.
The national coat of arms for Cameroon is found on the reverse of 2020 1 oz Silver Cameroon Mandrill Coins. The design includes a pointed shield with axes that cross behind the shields. The shield itself has a map outline of the nation in the central field with the scales of justice superimposed over it and topped by a single star.
