Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins are available with each design release in investment-grade bullion options and a collectible proof option. Like many other proof coins, these 2020 Proof Rwandan Lunar Rat Coins have a combination of frosted and mirrored elements to create visual contrast. The Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins are unique in that those visual contrasts dont just separate the design element from the background field, it also separates parts of the design elements using a shattered-glass visual element.


The obverse side of the 2020 Proof Rwandan Lunar Rat 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of a lone rat as it sits back on its hind legs. The rats tail swirls upward behind it as its front paws are lifted up and its ears are perked as it looks around. The shattered-glass visual element separates portions of the rats body visually from its tail, head, and ears. The immediate background field has the same shattered-glass look with frosted finishes, while the outer rim of the coin has mirrored backgrounds.


On the reverse, 2020 Proof Rwandan Lunar Rat Silver Coins showcase the coat of arms for the Republic of Rwanda. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include Banki Nkuru Yu Rwanda, Amafaranga, and Mirongo Itanu. These inscriptions are in the native Kinyarwanda tongue of Rwandas indigenous tribes. The top inscription, for example, identifies the Central Bank of Rwanda as the backer of the coin.


The Rwandan Lunar Ounce series launched in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster. The program is scheduled to run through 2028 with a unique design for each of the 12 animals in the Chinese lunar calendar.
