The African lion is often referred to as the King of the Jungle, despite the fact that lions inhabit arid grasslands and savannas, not dense forests. One of the world’s largest cats, the lion lives in family units known as prides. These prides often consist of only two to four males and a large number of females. The male lion is instantly recognizable with its thick mane.
All of the 2021 1 oz Silver Solomon Islands Animals of Africa Lion Shaped Coins in this product listing come to you with presentation packaging from the mint. Each coin is housed in its own protective acrylic capsule that is custom-made for the coins of this series. The coin and capsule arrive in a themed shipper and a Certificate of Authenticity is available with your purchase.
Additionally, the coins in this series feature reverse proof visuals and a unique serial number. You will find that serial number engraved on the obverse field as a number from 0001 to 2500. The reverse-proof finish delivers mirrored designs over frosted fields for a distinct visual contrast.
On the obverse of the 2021 Silver Solomon Islands Animals of Africa Lion Shaped Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in a right-profile effigy that was created in 1998. Designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, it served as the fourth-generation portrait of Elizabeth II on British coins until 2015, was the fifth-generation portrait on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018, and has graced the coins of other Commonwealth nations like the Solomon Islands.
The reverse side of 2021 1 oz Silver Animals of Africa Lion Shaped Coins features the imposing male lion. The powerful predator is shown striding along with his muscular frame flexing with his steps. Lions are typically daytime predators, unlike some other wild cats, but when necessary, lions can become nocturnal hunters.
