2017 Tanzania Half Gram Gold Big Five - Leopard Proof
Out of Africa and into Your Collection!
A term originally created by 19th century big game trophy hunters, Africa's "Big Five" referred to the most difficult -- and dangerous -- animals to hunt and kill on foot. Today, the lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard are still pursued by travelers to African parks and reserves. But these 21st century hunters are usually armed only with the latest zoom lenses and camcorders, on the hunt for the ultimate photo shoot! Can't afford to go on safari? No problem! Now you can capture your own leopard as a majestic 99.99% pure gold proof!
The Lightning-Fast African Leopard
The smallest animal of the Big Five, the solitary nocturnal African Leopard is distinguished by its beautiful black-spotted coat -- making it a prime target for hunters in the past. But their ability to run up to 36 miles per hour and leap over 20 feet still hasn't kept them off the current International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Fortunately, dedicated conservationists are working to protect and breed these beloved animals for future generations!
Bring Home Your Own Leopard, Immortalized in a Half-Ounce of Gold!
Of course, the best way to bring a leopard to your collection is with this gorgeous 2017 Big Five Gold Proof.
