Minted by BH Mayer’s mint Kunstprageanstalt Gmbh Munich, Germany, the Rwanda Wildlife Series began in 2008 with the Silver Elephant coin. With a denomination of 100 shillings, the German-manufactured Rwanda 1 oz Silver Wildlife Series has begun to attract attention from coin collectors all over the world. Celebrating the beauty of the animal kingdom, the Silver Wildlife Series portrays the amazing animals found on the African plains: the gorilla, elephant, lion, zebra, rhino, cheetah, impala, buffalo and meerkat. Retaining the same design since the Silver coin’s release, the reverse depicts the official seal of Rwanda featuring tribal devices surmounted on a cogwheel and encircled by a square knot. However, unlike the reverse, the obverse of the coin changes annually but always features an illustration of a celebrated African animal, some of which are endangered, next to a beautiful depiction of Africa.

All 2016 1 oz Rwandan Meerkat Silver Coins listed here are in BU condition unless otherwise noted. Coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, but aren’t 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.
