The okapi is one of many distinctive animals that inhabits the African continent and it is closely related to the giraffe, the only other living member of the family Giraffidae along with the okapi. The average okapi stands roughly 4ft 9in tall at the shoulders with a total body length of upwards of 8ft. Okapis can range from 440 lbs to 770 lbs in weight, with the male of the species often reaching greater length and weight.
Okapis can be distinguished by the visual appearance of ossicones on the head of the males in the species. These short, horn-like physical characteristics are similar to those found on the head of a giraffe. Conversely, females do not have the ossicones, but do have hair whorls on their heads.
The obverse field of 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Okapis comes with the national coat of arms for the Republic of Rwanda. The national seal for Rwanda consists of a woven basket at the center with a sorghum branch and coffee branch on either side of the basket. There is a sun above the basket and a cogwheel below. These elements are flanked on either side by tribal shields, with the entire design encircled by a rope tied in a knot at the bottom.
On the reverse side of the 2021 Proof Silver Rwandan Okapis is a depiction of the topographic map of the African continent. There are two okapis standing in the lower-left field of the design element with the adult reaching up to dine on leaves from the tree nearby.
These 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Rwandan Okapis are available to you with frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields. The coins are individually packaged inside of plastic capsules and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
