Why order this Proof-like 100 Shillings Silver Plated Tanzania Serengeti Rhino

This Silver Plated Tanzania Proof 100 Shillings Serengeti Rhino is part of a limited mintage of just 25,000. It weighs 25g and was struck at the Mayer Mint in Germany. The coin would make an ideal addition to any collection focused on wild animals.

Stunning Black Rhino Design

The obverse of this Serengeti Rhino features the Tanzanian coat of arms. Two people, a man on the left and a woman on the right, hold a native shield. The shield is full of symbolism. Some examples include a burning torch for freedom and an ax and hoe, tools used to develop the nation. At the bottom of the image is a ribbon with the word "UHURU NA UMOJA," which is Swahili for "Freedom and Unity."

The reverse features a black rhino facing to the right of the holder. In the background are some of the trees in the famed Serengeti Plain. At the top is an inscription of the name of the animal, "BLACK RHINOCEROS."

Flawless Prooflike 70 Ultra Cameo

Strong contrasts between mirrored and frosted sections on both sides of this coin earned it the status of "Ultra Cameo." The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) also graded the coin, giving it their grade of Proof-like 70, a grade only given to coins that lack any flaws that are visible when the coin is viewed under 5x magnification.

Don't miss your chance to own this 100 Shillings Proof-like Tanzania Silver Plated Serengeti Rhino.
