Each coin in the Rwandan Wildlife Series has shared features and differentiations that make new releases unique. For example, the background field on the obverse face bears the same design for each new coin in the series. An outline of the African continent dominates the background field and highlights the geological features of the continent, most notably the Nile River along the eastern coast.

In the lower-left field of each coins obverse design is the specific design element that changes from one year to the next, with each new design honoring a different species from the African continent. For 2016, the meerkat was chosen as the animal to represent the 9threlease in the coin series.

Each 2016 Rwandan Meerkat 1 oz Silver Coin in this listing has a grade of Mint State 69 from the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered near perfect, exhibit full, original mint luster, and include a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the surface.


The obverse face features the primary design sets mentioned earlier, as well as engravings that include African Ounce, 2016, and 1 oz Fine Silver 999.


On the reverse, youll find the official crest of Rwanda. Engravings on this face include the face value of the coin and the name of the Central Bank of Rwanda, and all engravings are done in the local Kinyarwanda language.
