The Unique Rwanda Wildlife Series’ Latest Animal arrives at APMEX

2019 Gold and Silver Shoebill Coin

The African shoebill, a very large stork-like bird, is native to tropical east Africa. Named after its shoe-shaped bill, this bird is celebrated as the latest Rwanda Wildlife release at APMEX.

Introduced in 2008 by Germany’s BH Mayer Mint, the Rwanda Wildlife Series has featured numerous wild animals from across the plains of Africa in a beautiful way. Similar to previous releases in the series, including the lion, cheetah and African Cape buffalo,  the 2019 Rwanda African Shoebill displays a detailed image of Africa arching over the animals, in this case an adult shoebill and baby.

The Rwanda Wildlife Series has been popular not only for its brilliant designs but also for its low mintages. While the 1 oz Silver coins have no set mintage, they have seen limited numbers in past releases. However, just 1,000 of the 1 oz Proof Silver coins are produced, while the 1 oz Gold coins will have a mintage of only 100.

Add the newest Rwanda Wildlife Series release, in Silver or Gold, to your collection today and keep up with the entire series at APMEX.
