The Rwandan Wildlife Series was launched in 2008 to honor the native members of Africas animal kingdom. These 2015 1 oz Rwandan African Buffalo Silver coins are the 8th in the popular series. Each coin is minted by Germanys BH Mayer Mint.
On the reverse side of each coin is the image of a female African buffalo, with its calf standing nearby. Also included on this side is an outline of the African continent, with a rugged finish. Engravings on this side read African Ounce, 2015, and the weight, metal content, and purity of the coin.
The obverse side of these coins features the coat of arms for the nation of Rwanda. This seal was redesigned by the national government in 2001. Along the bottom of the seal is the engraving Ubumwe-Umurimo-Igihugu, which translates from local Kinyarwanda to English as Unity, Work, Patriotism.
Likewise, there are two engravings along the top and bottom of the coin in the local tongue of Kinyarwanda. Above the official seal is the engraving Banki Nkuru Yu Rwanda, which translates to Bank of Rwanda in English. On the bottom, the engraving Amafaranga, Mirongo Itanu identifies the coins as legal tender in Rwanda.
German mints are renowned for their engineering and design prowess in the production of gold and silver bullion products. Mayer Mint GMBH is one of the nations finest mints, though it is also one of the youngest, having opened its doors for business for the first time in 1871.
