Coins in the Rwandan Wildlife Series share a common design theme on the reverse, as well as a central design element on the obverse. The design field on the obverse of all coins in this release include a geographic map outline for the continent of Africa. No national borders are visible, but the rivers and mountains of the continent are featured.
In the lower left field of the 2016 1 oz Proof Rwandan Meerkat Silver Coin is the image that sets each release, including this one, apart in the series. While all coins share the common African continent image, the lower-left field has the image of a family of alert meerkats. This section of the obverse side changes each year to represent each new animal.
On the reverse of all Rwandan Meerkat Silver Coins youll find the coat of arms for the nation of Rwanda in the center of the design field. Included on this face are engravings of the Central Bank of Rwanda and the face value of the coin, with all engravings in a local dialect of African tribes. This version of the national seal was adopted in 2001.
All 2016 1 oz Proof Rwandan Meerkat Silver Coins in this listing arrive in protective plastic capsules to preserve the fine proof condition of the coin, and include a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The series of Rwandan Wildlife Coinsare all struck in Germany by the BH Mayer mint facility of Kunstprageanstalt Gmbh in Munich, in the state of Bavaria.
