The Rwanda Wildlife Series of silver coins is a celebration of beautiful animals found in nature. This series focuses on some of the native species that call Africa home. This series focuses on animals native to Africa and not just Rwanda.

For this 10thdesign, the BH Mayer Mint continued with the trend of using a common design element on the obverse while changing the images in the lower-left design field. Each coin includes a continental outline of Africa, which is limited to geographical features rather than political boundaries.


The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Rwandan Hippo 1 oz Silver Coin features a topographical image of the African continent. A family of hippos in the lower-left field of the design is featured. Engravings on the obverse side of the coin include the term African Ounce, along with the coins year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.


The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Rwandan Hippo 1 oz Silver Coin features the Rwandan coat of arms. In lieu of depicting a nation of issue, placed above the coat of arms is an engraving that indicates these coins are backed by the Central Bank of Rwanda. All coins in this series feature engravings on the reverse in a local Rwandan tribal dialect.

The 2017 Proof Rwandan Hippo 1 oz Silver Coin is produced by the BH Mayer Mint, in Germany. Founded in 1871, the mint is one of the younger mints operating in Europe. While other mints in Germany are sovereign mints, the Mayer Mint is a family-owned operation that has been operated by five generations of the same family since it was first founded.
