Rhino Sierra Leone Coin - Pobjoy Mint

The Powerful Rhino Latest From Pobjoy Mint


Pobjoy Mint is thrilled to announce the release of the third coin in the series of five featuring the Big Five African Animals that are proving to be exceptionally popular. The third coin features the powerful Rhino.

Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, these new coins are being produced in magnificent high relief that really emphasizes the power of these animals and illustrates the appeal of these ‘famous five’.

Africa’s Big 5 are the undisputed superstars of any safari. The opportunity to see any of the Big 5 living wild and free in their natural habitats will be at the top of most travelers bucket list. The term ‘the Big 5’ was originally created by game hunters to represent the most difficult game to hunt but thankfully when you go on a safari these days the only item you will be pointing at these magnificent animals is a camera.

The third coin in the series features the Rhino. These mammals have been around for millions of years and do have a prehistoric look about them. They are easily recognizable by the horns on the forehead. The largest land mammals after the elephant, rhinos can be very bold and have been seen grazing right next to lions. Rhinos rank among the most endangered species on Earth. Valued for their horns they face a dire threat from poaching, which means their numbers are decreasing rapidly and they face a serious threat of extinction.

The coin has been produced in stunning high relief in 2oz Fine Silver. The coin features the head of a Rhino styled as though it is an African mask. The special incused rim features an African pattern to continue the theme. This is the third coin in the series and a further two coins will be released featuring the remaining animals known as the ‘Big Five’.
