Beautifully designed, featuring the largest living primates, this innovative coin of Niue is sure to generate a great deal of demand among collectors. Issued as part of the Endangered Animal Species series, the coin is a unique piece of art with the limited mintage of a mere 2 000 pieces worldwide. Fine .999 silver in proof quality, vibrant digital printing and a genuine Swarovski insert make the Mountain Gorilla coin truly gorgeous!
The obverse is decorated with an effigy of Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.
The eye-catching reverse displays two colored Mountain Gorillas as well as the map showing their natural habitat. The magnifying glass is embellished with a gray Swarovski crystal. There are about 600 Mountain gorillas living at high altitudes of 10 000 feet or higher on the slopes of mountains or volcanoes. Unfortunately, the animals are now considered as a critically endangered species – poachers that are after baby gorillas for international trade often kill entire families. This high quality coin of exquisite design is sure to enchant even the most demanding coin collectors!
