$169.00

The Antelope is the third coin to be released in the series of five coins depicting Sierra Leone’s “The Wild 5” animals.  The coin has been produced in magnificent High Relief in 2oz Proof Fine Silver.  The design features the head of an Antelope in relief with the word “ANTELOPE”.  The obverse of the coin shows the coat of arms of the Republic of Sierra Leone. Following this third release a further two coins will be released featuring: The Baboon and The Zebra.

The word antelope is used to describe a wide variety of large, horned mammals in the Family Bovidae. They can be found in grasslands, mountains, deserts and wetlands of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America. The largest of all antelopes is the Eland which is approximately 6 feet tall while the smallest is the Royal antelope which is about the same size as a rabbit at only 10 to 12 inches in height. All antelopes have even-toed hooves, horizontal pupils, a stomach adapted for re-chewing of the food and body horns. The horns vary in shape or size depending on the breed and can be straight, spiral, curved or twisted. Antelopes use their horns for fighting against other antelopes during the mating season and to protect themselves, or the herd, from predators.
