For the 10th anniversary of this program, the Rwandan African Wildlife Series focuses on the continents tallest animal. The giraffe is found natively on the African continent and exists outside of African only in zoos. Debuting in 2008, the Rwandan African Wildlife Series has a new creature on the obverse design each year, and is minted only through the end of its calendar year of issue. These two factors ensure collectible demand and low mintage figures.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Rwandan Giraffe Silver Coin is the image of a mother giraffe with her young calf. The African savannah stretches out into the background of the design. There is a common feature of all obverse designs in this series, with the African continents outline and geographic features dominating the design field. Engravings on this face include African Ounce, along with the year of issue, weight, metal content, and purity of the coin.
The reverse of the Rwandan Giraffe Silver Coin includes the seal of the nation of Rwanda. This seal is captured in the center of the design field, with the name of the issuing bank and the face value featured on this side as well. Engravings here are in the native tongue of Rwanda.
All 2018 1 oz Rwandan Giraffe Silver Coins listed here today are in BU condition. Coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, but arent exactly perfect specimens either. BU coins have minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the striking of blanks.
