Make the "King of Beasts" King of Your Collection!
The image is unmistakable. Framed by a lush mane, a feline face that radiates wisdom, authority and, if provoked, unimaginable fury. The lion, also known as panthera leo, has captured the imaginations of civilizations for millennia. Stories of their ferocity and fearsome nature have been told for generations. However, the more we know about these fascinating animals, the more we've discovered their beauty and vulnerability. Adorable as cubs and majestic as adults, the lions of the African savanna still attract tourists and transfix millions around the globe today.
It's these same animals that serve as the namesake of the popular African Lion proof. Struck since 2015, this beautiful series has been shared by several African countries, each year showcasing a new reverse design. For 2018, the Republic of Chad is issuing this beloved proof coin for the second year in a row. With a reverse by acclaimed pencil artist Casey "Remrov" Vormer, this 2018 One-Ounce Silver African Lion Proof is among the most stunning yet!
- BORN IN GRAPHITE, IMMORTALIZED IN SILVER! -- Known as "Remrov," Montreal-based Casey Vormer's lifelike illustrations have received international acclaim for their extraordinary detail.

This 2018 One-Ounce Silver African Lion Proof faithfully recreates his masterpiece "Lion King."
- PROOF-STRUCK IN 99.9% FINE SILVER -- These exceptional coins begin as hand-selected one-ounce planchets of 99.9% fine silver. Then, using polished dies and multiple strikes, each blank is transformed into a lustrous proof that exhibits razor sharp details and mirror-like fields.
