All 2023 1 oz Rwandan Nile Crocodile Silver Coins in this online JM Bullion listing will arrive to you in a capsule with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Each coin was produced by Mayer Mint in partnership with Rwanda, where they are considered legal tender.
Though rather terrifying to behold, crocodiles make for a rather fascinating subject of study. While the headlines will focus on their ability to devour creatures as large as a hippo, the crocodile also boasts many unique, less unsettling qualities. Some of these include their ability to emit 20 different sounds, more than any other living reptile. They’re also known to swallow stones, which is possibly done for digestive purposes or simply to help them stay underwater for longer periods of time.
On the obverse of 2023 1 oz Proof Rwandan Nile Crocodile Coins, the Rwandan coat of arms is depicted. First adopted in 2001, this national emblem contains a circle of rope with a cog wheel inside it. Above the wheel is a traditional woven basket with a coffee tree and a stem of sorghum on either side. Inscriptions on the obverse read Banki Nkuru Y’U Rwanda, Amafaranga 50 Mirongo Itanu.
The reverse of 2023 Proof Rwandan Nile Crocodile Silver Coins features a pair of Nile Crocodiles at the river. The larger of the two sits on the bank, while the smaller one is seen submerged halfway in the water. Like other coins in this series, the continent of Africa is also featured on the reverse side. Inscriptions on the reverse read African Ounce, 2023 1 oz Fine Silver .999.
