Why purchase this 2017 Tanzania Rare Wildlife: Royal Bengal Tiger Colorized Silver Proof?

The Royal Bengal Tiger is the national animal for the countries of Bangladesh and India. The tiger's conservation status is listed as endangered, with less than 2,500 living worldwide. This stunning coin honors the tiger, featuring a translucent colorizing technique, which gives the overall appearance of the image a lustrous shimmer. The 50 mm diameter coin is struck from 2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver by the Mayer Mint to a dramatic Ultra High Relief proof finish, its mintage limited to only 999 pieces.

Vibrantly Colorized Tiger image

A close-up view of a Royal Bengal Tiger adorns the reverse, with its mouth open in a fierce roar. Hidden within the colorized areas of the design are the inscriptions "2017," "ROYAL BENGAL TIGER" and "PANTHERA TIGRIS TIGRIS."

The obverse features Tanzania's Coat of Arms, depicting a couple standing at the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro supporting a shield between them; the country's motto, "UHURU NA UMOJA" on a banner below, meaning "Freedom and Unity' in Swahili. Inscribed "TANZANIA" and "1500 SHILLINGS."
