    This past year, the nation of Burundi commenced their new “African Lion” coin series with the release of its 2015 1 oz Silver African Lion Coin. The exclusive piece will be restricted to a limited mintage of only 50,000 pieces. Each silver coin has been carefully crafted from 1 troy oz of silver and possesses a fineness of .999, consequently giving it an impressive face value of 5,000 Burundi Francs. All coins included in this particular collection are guaranteed to be in brilliant uncirculated and will be shipped in either a protective coin flap, original sealed tube of 20 or sealed monster of 500.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Limited mintage of just 50,000 coins!
    • Contains 1 oz of 99.9% silver.
    • Minted by the Burundi Mint.
    • Features an African Lion design to honor the country’s most famous big cat.
    • Individual coins ship in a protective coin flap, multiples of 20 ship in tubes and multiples of 500 ship in sealed monster boxes.

    The artwork for this stunning piece commemorates none other than Africa’s most ferocious predator, the lion. Gracing the front of the coin is a male lion, laying next to his female mate. The intense and attentive expressions on both their faces suggests that the pair may be on the look out for their next unsuspecting prey. Depicted around these feral felines are the Boabab trees and tall blades of grass that make up the terrain of their African savanna home. Such detailed rendering of both the lions and their native habitat are enough to make the viewer feel as though they were actually on safari. Also printed on the obverse of the coin is the title of the coin series and its year of mintage.

    The reverse side of the coin offers a moving tribute to the rich culture of the Burundi people with an artistic rendition of the national coat of arms. In the center of the crest is a lion’s head, complete with a thick mane. Beneath it is an unfurling scroll inscribed with the nation’s motto of “Unite, Travail, Progres.” It is written the country’s official French language and translates into the words, “Unity, Work and Progress.” Serving as a circular border to this design are the coin’s vital information including its country of origin, mintage date, denomination, purity and weight.

    With its beautiful artwork, the 2015 1 oz Burundi Silver African Lion Coin is stunning collectible that is suitable for both the wildlife enthusiast or world traveler.
