2022 Wild Five- Zebra 2oz. Silver High Relief Proof

$169.00

The Zebra is the fifth and final coin in the series of five coins depicting Sierra Leone’s “The Wild 5” animals.

Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, these new coins are being produced in magnificent High Relief which really shows the detail of the head of the Zebra design and illustrates the appeal of these animals.

The coin has been produced in magnificent High Relief in 2oz Proof Fine Silver.  The design features the head of a Zebra in relief with the word “ZEBRA” whilst the obverse of the coin shows the coat of arms of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

The final coin in the series features perhaps the most stylish of African animals – the Zebra. Just like human fingerprints, the striped pattern of each Zebra is unique to each individual. Although they may appear to be badly camouflaged, when they are in a herd the distinct stripes merge into a big mass and make it extremely difficult for predators to single out individual animals. Owing primarily to their distinctive striped coats, a group of zebra is called a ‘dazzle’. This name also refers to a unique phenomenon called “motion dazzle”, an optical illusion that occurs when groups of zebra move quickly together. One of the world’s most awe-inspiring spectacles occurs when massive herds of Zebra merge into a big mass consisting of tens of thousands of the species and migrate across the Serengeti plains.
