Why purchase this flawless 2019 Smithsonian Zoo Buffalo commemorative Silver medal?

Established in 1889 by President Grover Cleveland, the Smithsonian National Zoo began as a small herd of American Buffalo and a Golden Eagle housed on the National Mall in Washington D.C. The first release in a series of proof medals commemorating the founding of the zoo features a sensational image created by Natanya van Niekerk, designer of many of the Natura series coins of the South African Mint. This limited mintage (2,500) was struck by the Commonwealth Mint from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.

Impressively Detailed Buffalo Design

The powerful image of a standing buffalo is depicted on the reverse, with the sun and sky rendered above in a stylized manner. "FOUNDING OF THE NATIONAL ZOO" curves below. Featured on the obverse is the image of President Cleveland, the date "2019" and the familiar Smithsonian sun logo.
