On the obverse side of the 2021 Silver Rwandan Okapi Coin is the national seal for the Republic of Rwanda. The design focuses on a number of different elements representative of Rwandan culture. The center of the design has a woven basket with a stylized sun overhead and a cogwheel below. The sides of the basket are flanked by a coffee branch and sorghum plant, with traditional shields flanking the broader design. A rope is woven around the entire seal to frame it. This face of the coin also has inscriptions of the nation of issue, date mark, and face value of the coin in Rwandan Francs.
The reverse face of 2021 1 oz Silver Rwandan Okapi Coins comes with two separate design elements. The common one is the topographical map of the African continent that has featured on the coins since the program began in 2008. The other is the family of okapi depicted in the lower-left field of the coin. The okapi is one of two living members of the Giraffidae family and lives within a very narrow region of the continent. Okapis are predominantly found at elevation within canopy forests. Specifically, okapi can be found in the tropical forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa.
