Why buy this 50 Franc 2019 Rwanda 1 oz Silver RWF African Ounce Shoebill?
Continuing a tradition that started over a decade ago in 2008, this Rwanda African Wildlife Shoebill celebrates yet another of Africa's unique creatures. It is perfect for bird lovers and anyone looking to diversify a collection of standard issues from giants of the numismatic world. The coin was struck at the Mayer Mint in Munich, Germany on a one-ounce planchet of .999 fine silver. The coin comes in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Striking Shoebill Design
Unlike most coin series, this one features a different obverse design, rather than reverse design, with each new issue. However, one part of that design, a geographical map of Africa, has remained constant. As with other issues, the featured animal appears in the lower left. There, one shoebill faces just to the right of the holder, while the other is standing in left-side profile. This gives the holder two unique looks at this remarkable creature. The designs are joined by three sets of inscriptions on the rim, "AFRICAN WILDLIFE," "2019," and "1 OZ FINE SILVER 999."
The official Seal of Rwanda is at the center of the reverse design. A variety of tribal devices are mounted on a cogwheel. Above that design is a ribbon that bears an inscription in Kinyarwanda that translates to "Republic of Rwanda." Another ribbon is included below it. That one bears an inscription, also in Kinyarwanda, that means "Unity, Work, Patriotism." The face value is among the other inscriptions on this face of the coin.
