The Big Cats Series is a new five-coin collection from the Pobjoy Mint that builds on the popularity of its 2019 collection, the Big Five. The designs set to feature in the Big Cats Series include this debut release of the African lion and will continue, in order, with the tiger, cheetah, cougar, and black panther. Each coin will have the denomination on the obverse side rather than the reverse like the Big Five Series.


A depiction of the coat of arms for the Republic of Sierra Leone is shown on the obverse of all 2020 Republic of Sierra Leone Big Cats 2 oz Silver Coins. The national shield has a lion in passant pose on the shield itself with a field of azure waves below and three torches above. The shield itself is supported by a lion in rampant pose on either side.


The powerful male lion is shown on the reverse of the 2020 Republic of Sierra Leone Big Cats Lion 2 oz Silver Coin. The male lion is instantly distinguishable at adulthood by the presence of its large, thick mane around its head and neck. Lions live in family units known as prides that consist of an alpha male, several younger males, and females and cubs from the same family group.


The Big Cats Series silver coins also feature another unique change from the Big Five. The identifying inscriptions on the reverse are struck with the series name Big Cats in raised relief and the specific cat, in this case Lion, in incuse relief sunken into the surface of the coin.


All 2020 Republic of Sierra Leone Big Cats Lion 2 oz Silver Coins are available to purchase as high-relief strikes. A high relief coin is a silver blank that is struck several times in the coin press under intense pressure. The result is a sunken field that allows for higher relief on the design elements.
