2017 Rwanda Hippo Coins - Silver coins from Rwanda are high in quality and popular. The 2017 Rwanda Hippo coins are not only beautiful but they are high in Silver content. The Rwandan Hippo coins are part of the Rwanda African Wildlife series, which is incredibly popular with collectors for its stunning details and representation of one of the most revered animals in the world. Each Silver bullion coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver and features an African hippo mother and her calf on the obverse and the official seal of Rwanda on the reverse.
Produced at a traditional German Mint, the Rwanda Wildlife Series began in 2008 with the Silver Gorilla coin. With a denomination of 50 shillings, the German manufactured Rwanda 1 oz Silver Wildlife Series has begun to attract attention from coin collectors all over the world.
Celebrating the beauty of the animal kingdom, the Silver Wildlife Series portrays the amazing animals found on the African plains: the gorilla, elephant, lion, zebra, rhino, cheetah, impala, buffalo and meerkat. Retaining the same design since the Silver coin's release, the reverse depicts the official seal of Rwanda featuring tribal devices surmounted on a cogwheel and encircled by a square knot. However, unlike the reverse, the obverse of the coin changes annually but always features an illustration of a celebrated African animal, some of which are endangered, next to a beautiful depiction of Africa.
In 2017 the Rwanda Wildlife Series features the impressive African Hippopotamus.
