The orderCrocodyliais a group of twenty-four species of reptilian predators more commonly known simply as the crocodiles. Thriving in lowland habitats all over the globe, they form a living connection to the Age of the Dinosaurs, having evolved over 200 million years ago, and act as a crucial link in the many ecosystems where they can be found today. Many of the crocodilian species have benefited from successful conservation efforts since the 1970s: efforts led by countries like the Republic of Burundi, which reaffirms its commitments with the first issue in the Protecting Wildlife series. The 2023 Antique Burundi Protecting Wildlife Crocodile 5 oz Silver Coin is now available for online purchase from Provident Metals.

The 2023 Antique Burundi Protecting Wildlife Crocodile Silver Coin contains five full ounces of pure silver and offers a beautiful antiqued finish that accentuated the details in its ultra-high-relief artwork. It ships in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity to specify each coin’s unique number in the exclusive limited mintage.


The obverse features the Republic of Burundi’s coat of arms and its motto in both French and Swahili. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “IBANKI YA REPUBLIKA Y ‘UBURUNDI,” “2023,” “5 oz .999 Ag” and “100 Francs.”


The coin’s reverse side features a crocodile rendered in vivid, ultra-high-relief sculpting. The reptilian predator appears in its habitat, perched on a rock with a clutch of eggs protected behind it.


The Protecting Wildlife series promotes awareness of some of the world’s most majestic wildlife species and the need to conserve their habitats and populations. Burundi devotes the first issue to the crocodile, an animal with which this country has a special relationship, having played host for decades to a mighty specimen named Gustave — over twenty feet long and two thousand pounds — who became the most famous crocodile in the world and is believed by some to be still on the hunt. Crocodilian species in Africa have benefited from passionate conservation efforts since the 1970s, but several species remain endangered in countries like China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil, and this bullion collectible is dedicated to the ongoing effort to secure their recovery.
