The African Lion Silver coin series is a truly unique collection of silver coins. Each year there is a new African Lion design on the obverse of the coin, but that’s not all that makes it special. The coins were first issued for the nation of Rwanda in 2015, and then distributed through collaboration with the Republic of Congo.
African Lions are commonly known as the King of the Jungle, despite their natural habitat not including much for jungle territory. They are more commonly found on the open plains and grasslands of the African savannah, where they live in family groups known as prides that have one adult alpha male and a group of females and young cubs.
For the 2017 1 oz African Lion Silver Coin, the Republic of Chad was chosen as the representative nation in the African Lion release. On the obverse of these 2017 1 oz Republic of Chad African Lion Silver Coins is the image of a lioness, the first time a female lion has featured on the design solo.
The reverse of the Republic of Chad African Lion Silver Coins you’ll find an outline of the African continent. There is a stamped out section of the map that represents the borders of the Republic of Chad in the north-central region of the continent.
