Since its introduction in 2008, the Rwandan Wildlife African Ounce Series has quietly become one of the favorites among collectors. Alongside the Somalia Elephant Series, this collection is one of the longest-running and most popular from the African continent, with the coins produced in Germany by BH Mayer Mint. Today, you have the chance to get 2022 Proof Rwandan Pelican 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
Pelicans are related to a species of birds that have already featured in the Rwandan Wildlife Series. Though pelicans were initially believed to be related to species such as frigatebirds, cormorants, and tropicbirds, most now believe them to be closely related to the shoebill, a family of birds that featured recently in the collection.
On the obverse of 2022 Proof Pelican 1 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of the coat of arms of Rwanda. The national seal of the Republic of Rwanda features a basket at the center set above a cogwheel. The sun rises above the basket as branches of sorghum and coffee immediately flank it on either side. This is further supported on the sides by indigenous shields with a rope knotted at the bottom surrounding the entire design. The inscriptions on this field of the coin read BANKI NKURU YU RWANDA and AMAFARANGA 50 MIRONGO ITANU.
The reverse of the 2022 Proof Pelican Silver Coins features the African continents outline as the dominant element. This is set within the center field of the coin, with the image of two pelicans near a marshy body of water in the lower-left field. Inscriptions on this side include AFRICAN OUNCE, 2022, and 1 OZ FINE SILVER 999.
The Rwandan Wildlife African Ounce Series is one of several collections for Rwanda that includes African Ounce in the title. Introduced in 2008, this one is the longest-running series. In 2017, Rwanda gained two additional collections within the African Ounce concept. These included the Rwandan African Ounce Lunar Series and the Rwandan African Ounce Nautical Series.
These 2022 Proof Rwandan Pelican 1 oz Silver Coins come with individual capsules and a Certificate of Authenticity. Each coin has frosted designs and mirrored fields.
