A Tribute to the King of the Jungle

One of the most often repeated misnomers is that the lion is the king of the jungle. The African lion lives not in the jungle but on the savanna. While that part of the moniker may be misleading, the king part is hard to dispute. Social animals, lions live and hunt in packs, posing mortal danger to any creature they see when looking for a meal. The quintessential big cats are as beautiful as they are ferocious, which is another reason that people traveling to Africa are eager to see them whenever possible, just as those who go to zoos consider them can't miss attractions. Part of the Big Five series, this one gram gold 2018 Tanzania African Lion note gives you the opportunity to get a much closer look at the creatures than you ever could otherwise.

  • STUNNING AFRICAN LIONS DESIGN – The reverse of this note features a pair of African lions, including a closeup look at the face of a male with his majestic mane giving him a regal look. The lions are on the savanna, as illustrated by the acacia trees in the background.


  • THIN, FLEXIBLE DESIGN -- Struck from one gram of 99.99% fine gold, this thin note has remarkable flexibility that would offer variety to any collection.


  • REALISTIC DESIGN IN A PROOF-LIKE FINISH -- The note has a prooflike finish that makes the design appear even more realistic.


  • TANZANIA LEGAL TENDER – Each 2018 Big Game African Lion note is 1500 shillings legal tender in Tanzania. Tanzania is an East African nation that is known for its remarkable wildlife. In particular, it is home to much of the Great Migration, an annual massive movement of animals in search of food.


  • AN EXTREMELY LIMITED MINTAGE – Just 1,500 of these remarkable pieces were minted!


  • INSCRIBED CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY – Your Gold Big Game African Lion note will have a Certificate of Authenticity inscribed on the obverse of the note itself.

Powerful, elegant, and unchallenged in their place at the top of the food chain, lions have been symbols of royalty and strength for centuries. They roam their domains ready to take on challengers and hunt at will, posing mortal danger to anything that moves. It is little wonder, then, that they capture the imaginations of all who come across them, inspiring at once fear and determination, confidence and humility. This 2018 one gram Gold Tanzania African Lion note gives you the opportunity to experience all of this in one unique piece. Order yours at GovMint.com now, because these coins will disappear faster than a gazelle that got caught by a pride!
