The Transvaal lion has been the national symbol of Burundi since the late 17th century, starting out on the coat of arms of the royal Ganwa house that ruled over the region’s combined Hutu and Tutsi populations. That symbolism survived the era of European colonialism in the 19th and 20th centuries to be bequeathed to the independent Republic of Burundi, and it remains important to the country down to the present day. The wild lion populations of Burundi have seen their natural habitats shrink over the years, but today they have a home in the country’s northeast in the conservationist sanctuary of Ruvubu National Park. The magnificence of the lion is celebrated in pure gold by the 2023 Burundi Lion 1/2 Gram Gold Coin, now available from Provident Metals.
