Some of the most iconic wildlife species in the world are found in Africa, and the quest to protect their habitats and keep them off the endangered list is ongoing, with one of the biggest success stories since the 1970s being the conservation efforts that helped the population of crocodile rebound to their current abundant levels. Those efforts are a potential source for inspiration around the world, where several crocodilian species are still endangered, and the Republic of Burundi highlights them with the first issue in its Protecting Wildlife series: an extraordinary five-ounce coin with ultra high-relief artwork accentuated by a beautiful antique finish. The 2023 5 oz Silver Antique Burundi Protecting Wildlife Crocodile Coin is now available from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • First release in the Protecting Wildlife series, issued in 2023!
  • Limited mintage of just 799 coins!
  • Contains a full 5 Troy oz of .999 Fine Silver.
  • Face value of 100 Francs issued by the Republic of Burundi.
  • Obverse side features the Republic’s coat of arms.
  • Reverse side features an ultra-high-relief engraving of a crocodile protecting a clutch of eggs.

The 2023 Silver Antique Burundi Protecting Wildlife Crocodile Coin ships in a customized presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity to specify your coin’s unique number in the exclusive limited mintage. Silver.com tracks and fully insures every shipment against any possibility of a mishap in transit.

Burundi is a country with a particularly famous relationship with the crocodile, having been a host for decades to the most famous such animal in the wild: the mighty Gustave, who in 2002 was believed to measure more than twenty feet in length and weigh more than two thousand pounds and who may still be hunting to this day. Gustave was a spectacular specimen of a group of more than twenty species that the Republic has dedicated itself to preserving, and the first release in the Protecting Wildlife series re-emphasizes that commitment even as crocodile species in India, China, Brazil, and Indonesia continue to face endangerment.

The coin’s reverse side features an ultra-high-relief sculpture of a crocodile perched on a rock in its native habitat. The powerful reptilian predator is posed protectively in front of a clutch of eggs.

The obverse features Burundi’s coat of arms and its motto in both French and Swahili, accompanied by the inscriptions “IBANKI YA REPUBLIKA Y ‘UBURUNDI,” “2023,” “5 oz .999 Ag” and “100 Francs.”

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
