Rwandan Lunar Ounce coins debuted in 2017 with an impressive Year of the Rooster design. All coins in this collection feature a shattered-glass artistic background field. Even the lunar image itself has a shattered-glass appearance. Each of the coins has an octagonal shape at the top of the design field that houses the Chinese symbol for the animal depicted. In this case, the rat.


For the obverse field of 2020 Rwandan Lunar Rat 1 oz Silver Coins, the design depicts the image of a rat in the center. The small rat depicted here has a long, winding tail and the shattered-glass design field lends matte elements to some portions of the rats body and mirrored elements to others. For example, the head and tail have a more mirrored appearance to contrast the matte-like finish of the arms and legs. Other inscriptions on this side include Lunar Ounce, Year of the Rat, 2020, and 1 oz Fine Silver 999.


The reverse of 2020 Rwandan Lunar Rat Silver Coins includes the coat of arms for the Republic of Rwanda in the center of the design field. Inscriptions on this side of the coin are in Kinyarwanda, the native dialect of most of the tribes that have historically inhabited what is now the modern Republic of Rwanda.


Rwanda is one of the smallest countries on the African mainland and has a population drawn from just one cultural and linguistic group: the Banyarwanda. The Republic of Rwanda has three official languages in Kinyarwanda, French, and Swahili. The region was a Belgian colony from 1916 to 1959, gaining full independence in 1962.


The 2020 Rwandan Lunar Rat 1 oz Silver Coins are available individually inside of protective plastic flips or sealed sheets of 10 coins. Please dont hesitate to contact Provident Metals with questions. You can call us at 800-313-3315, chat with us live, or email us.
