The hippopotamus might appear to be a docile creature, but in its aquatic environment, the hippo can actually be quite deadly. Though relatively slow on land, the thousand-pound hippo is quick and aggressive in defending its territory in the water.


On the obverse of the 2022 Wild Five Hippopotamus 2 oz Silver Coin, you will find the coat of arms of the Republic of Sierra Leone. This design shows a spade shield with a heraldic lion in left-profile relief in front of mountains that are topped by torches. The shield is supported by palm trees and lions on either side. The field includes inscriptions of the REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE, 2022, and UNITY FREEDOM JUSTICE.


The reverse side of 2022 High Relief Republic of Sierra Leone Wild Five Hippopotamus Silver Coins comes with a depiction of the head of a hippo. The massive shape of the skull is captured in front-facing relief and dominates the field. Inscriptions on this side read HIPPOPOTAMUS and 20 DOLLARS.


The Wild Five Series at Pobjoy Mint celebrates some of the largest and most dangerous animals from the African continent. Hippos are predominantly found around water and spend most of their day submerged. Hippos can hold their breath for up to five minutes and even sleep while submerged under the water.


2022 High Relief Republic of Sierra Leone Wild Five Hippopotamus 2 oz Silver Coins are available with clear, acrylic displays. The coin and display are packaged in a themed outer shipper with a Certificate of Authenticity included.
