The Republic of Djibouti recently began issuing an exquisite series of spherical coins commemorating five of the most iconic species of African wildlife, animals as potentially dangerous as they are universally recognized to be majestic and beautiful. Called the Big Five series, its fourth issue focuses on commemorating the mighty rhinoceros. The 2022 Antique Djibouti Big Five Rhino Ball Shaped 1 Kilo Silver Coin is now available to you from Provident Metals.
With a refined antique finish that beautifully shows forth the quality of its sculptural artwork, the 2022 Antique Djibouti Big Five Rhino Ball Shaped Silver Coin is a coveted collector’s item that makes an ideal gift for special occasions, for enthusiasts of African wildlife, and for enthusiasts of unique coin designs alike. Provident Metals ships this item in a luxury case with a Certificate of Authenticity, and fully insures your shipment against loss or damage in transit.
On its obverse side, the coin carries an official coat of arms for the Republic of Djibouti. It is accompanied by the inscriptions “REPUBLIQUE DE DJIBOUTI” and “1000 FRANCS,” along with “Ag999” and “1 kg” to verify the weight and quality of the coin’s silver content.
A series of wilderness scenes of rhinoceros herds, along with a close-up portrait of a rhinoceros, decorate the coin’s reverse surface. At the apex of the sphere, a pair of maps of the African content frame a stylized Zulu shield design bearing the overlaid inscriptions “Big” and “3.” The inscriptions “RHINOS” and “2022” appear above and below.
The Big Five series represents a genuine achievement in minting technology, with a six-piece die set used to mint each of the exclusive issues in the Big Five series, making possible its remarkable and balanced pole-to-pole design work. The rhino reliefs that decorate its surface capture the mighty animal in multiple different moods and settings, and are executed with consummate skill and sympathy for their subjects’ iconic grandeur.
