Since ancient times the people of Africa have worshiped elephants because of their size, their serious and measured demeanour and the soothing sense of serenity they exude. With an elephant’s pregnancy lasting 22 months, it is hardly surprising that they know a thing or two about taking their time.

Series: Eyes of the World
All five coins in this new series are inspirational because each of the animals portrayed on them embodies an exceptional quality. Each animal possesses a special characteristic for which it was praised in the myths of previous cultures. The coin series not only speaks about these amazing creatures and how they have always inhabited and enlivened the human imagination, but also manages to create eye-to-eye contact with the animals. The eyes of the five animals featured in the series are resplendent on the reverse of the five different coins, each in its own shade of sublime Swarovski® crystal, enhancing their already mythical quality.
In the cultural history of Asia, images of the tiger abound. Power and strength in all their forms are ascribed to the predator. In China, the animal has always been an emblem of potency and bravery, depicted in the Year of the Tiger. In Hinduism, too, it plays a highly symbolic role, with the goddess Durga often portrayed astride a tiger.
Ever alert, silent and solitary, the tiger sets out mainly at dusk or at night in search of prey, often wandering for hours at a time. Unlike lions, for which rivers and lakes present a barrier, tigers love water and are excellent swimmers. Deep in the bamboo thickets of the jungle, an eerie blur of light and shadow makes a fleeting appearance. But so perfectly camouflaged by its magnificent stripes, the tiger remains unrecognizable.
