This coin is part of the “Endangered Species” coin series by the New Zealand Mint. Only 2,000 Black Rhino coins are being minted by the New Zealand Mint. Previously in the series was the Venerable Collared Lizard.
In the early 20th century the Black Rhinoceros, Diceros bicornis, was the most plentiful of all Rhino species across the African continent. Between 1970 and 1992, their numbers were severely reduced by over 95% due to organized poaching and black market demand for their horns. By 1993, only 2,300 survived in the wild. Intensive anti-poaching efforts over recent years have had encouraging results. However, the increase in numbers is slow. In 2013, the IUCN estimated that approximately 5,055 Black Rhinoceros lived in Eastern and Central Africa.
This relief engraving captures a delightful vista of the African grasslands. In the foreground, an endangered Black Rhinoceros dips its head to drink from a water hole. The scene is mirrored in the finely engraved water. This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Endangered Species, Black Rhinoceros 1 oz Silver coin comes packaged inside the NGC plastic case.
