The Rwandan Wildlife Series is just one of the many African Silver Coin Series in the world. Often overshadowed by the Somalian Elephant Series, the Rwandan Wildlife Series offers the same purity and variety of design as the other African Coin Series. Today, you can purchase the 2016 Proof Rwandan Meerkat 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals.


  • Ships in a protective plastic capsule!
  • Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • 9th coin in the Rwandan Wildlife Series!
  • Mintage limited to just 1,000 coins!
  • Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Proof finish!
  • Granted a face value of 50 Francs (RWF) backed by the Rwandan government.
  • Obverse features the image of Africa and its meerkats.
  • Reverse showcases the Rwandan coat of arms.

The coins in this listing ship in a protective plastic capsule for the protection of the coins. In addition to the capsule, you will also receive a numbered Certificate of Authenticity for proof that the coin is legitimate.


On the obverse side of each coin, you will see the map of Africa with a topographical depiction. On the lower left side of the coin, you will see three meerkats on their hind legs looking around. The image of the meerkats is the only part of this design that is different from the previous releases in the series. Each year, a new animal is featured in that spot.


The reverse face of these coins showcases the image of the Rwandan coat of arms. This unique image is surrounded by a number of engravings including the issuing body and face value of the coin. All of these engravings are in a local African dialect. This reversion of the coat of arms was adopted by Rwanda in 2001.


The coins in this series are minted by the BH Mayer Mint in Germany. These particular coins are minted at the Kunstprageanstalt Gmbh in Munich, Bavaria.
