Aydin Coins is proud to distributor for the officially licensed 2016 Discovery Channel Endangered Species Africa 2 Coin Proof Silver Set of Colorized Coins! This set includes two legal tender coins, each with a face value of 2 Dollars, celebrating two of Africa's most majestic yet threatened animal species, the lion and the mandrill. Struck from .999 fine silver, each coin contains 1.5 troy ounces of pure silver for a total of 3 troy oz of actual silver weight (ASW). The coins come in a fantastic display case from Discovery™ with an outer box that is individually numbered and signed by the designer. Only 700 of these 2-coin sets will be minted worldwide!
The reverse design of the lion coin depicts an adorable lion cub nuzzling the cheek of an adult male lion at rest. The mandrill coin depicts an adult male mandrill facing three-quarters right. Both images are colorized, bringing to life these incredible wild creatures. The lion's mane and the mandrill's unbelievable red, blue, and gold markings are shown in vibrant full color. The legend ("AFRICAN LION" and "AFRICAN MANDRILL," respectively) curls along the top rim. The Discovery™ logo is found at the bottom rim.
The common obverse of the coins shows a realistic and brightly colored planet earth. A smaller circle at the bottom rim contains Raphael Maklouf's right-facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in front of a globe. Around the outer rim, the inscriptions for the issuing country "NIUE ISLAND," the denomination "TWO DOLLARS," the year-date "2016," the weight "1 1/2 TROY OUNCE" and the purity ".999 FINE SILVER" appear in clockwise order, each separated by a small bullet point.
Not only does the two-coin silver set offer a limited mintage of 700 coins and beautiful colorization, it also advances Discovery's mission to enlighten and entertain the world with knowledge about the natural environment around us. Help bring awareness to the threatened African species of the lion and the mandrill with the amazing 2016 Discovery Channel Endangered Species Africa 2 Coin Proof Silver Set.
