The leopard is among five extant species of large cats in the Panthera genus. Other members of this species include the jaguar, lion, tiger, and cheetah. Unlike many of its counterparts though, the leopard has an exceptionally wide range around the world. It is found across wide stretches of sub-Saharan Africa, as well as smaller ranges in Western Asia, Central Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, South East Asia, and East Asia.
Leopards are physically unique when compared to other wild cats. The creature’s body is long and it has a large skull while boasting relatively short legs. Its fur pattern is also a unique identifier as its spot marks are in the shape of rosettes. Leopards are similar to jaguars in many respects, but typically have a smaller, lighter physique with smaller fur spots that are more densely packed on the coat and lack a central pot.
For the obverse of 2020 1 oz Silver Somalia African Wildlife Leopard Coins, you will find the coat of arms for Somalia. The design includes a crowned shield that has a single star set against a background field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported on either side by, appropriately, leopards.
In the reverse design element of the 2020 Silver Somalia African Wildlife Leopard Coin, the jaguar is shown in a new design for the 2020 issue. This year’s issue shows the nimble beast lounging at the edge of a large tree branch. Leopards are known to take their kill up into trees to protect the meal from scavengers.
These 2020 1 oz Silver Somalia African Wildlife Leopard Coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a unique gilded layer of 24-karat gold on the reverse design of the leopard. This thin layer of gold creates a visual contrast between the silver background field elements. All coins in this listing are packaged inside of protective capsules.
