A stunning South African coin celebrating these beautiful and often misunderstood creatures.
At just 1/10 of an oz, this breathtaking gold coin features a beautifully detailed image of a spotted hyena, the most common large carnivore in Africa, on its miniscule 16mm obverse. The hyena bares its teeth, conveying their danger as a predator, and the name 'South Africa' is emblazoned across the top of the coin.
The reverse features additional hyenas, their famed spotted pelts more visible, displaying a more playful and vulnerable side. Their heads bowed, they seem more playful and friendly.
This attractive gold coin is an ideal and affordable way to kickstart or add to your collection!
