This 24-karat gold layer has been selectively applied to only the body of the leopard and the sun in the background on the reverse side of the coins. The application of 24-karat gold creates visual contrast between the design element and the field of the coin. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and comes with an individual plastic capsule.
The Bavarian State Mint issues the African Wildlife coins on behalf of Somalia. This includes both the African Elephant Series and the Leopard Series. While the latter rarely has mintage caps, the Leopard Series does have a mintage cap. Just 30,000 silver coins are issued in the BU range, with 5,000 coins colorized and 5,000 coins completed with a gilded gold layer.
The obverse of the 2021 Silver Somalia African Wildlife Leopards features the Somali coat of arms. The national seal of Somalia has a crowned shield at the center with a single star at its center set against a background of horizontal lines. The shield is supported on the left and the right by leopards, and also comes with crossed spears and fern leaves below.
On the reverse side of 2021 1 oz Somalia African Wildlife Leopards is an image of the big cat. Leopards are known for climbing trees to get out of the heat and rest away from any potential danger. Leopards also commonly take their kill up into the trees with them to protect it from scavengers.
