Each year, the ever changing, featured wildlife of the Rwanda Silver Wildlife series can be found on the obverse side of the coin. The Rwanda Silver Wildlife series, beginning with the Rwanda Gorilla Coin in 2008, celebrates the magnificent beauty of the wildlife found on the African plains. However, the title of the series may be a bit misleading, since not all of the animals featured are native to Rwanda, but the African continent as a whole. Like many other nature-inspired coins, the Rwanda Silver Wildlife series celebrates the abundant beauty found in nature’s creations.
Commonly found on the obverse side of all Rwanda Wildlife Series coins is the phrase, “African Ounce,” the year of issue, metal content, purity, and weight. In addition, the obverse side always features a rugged outline of the continent of Africa.
As one of the most endangered species of Africa, the African Rhino is a perfect choice for this exclusive, limited edition series. With the continent of Africa artfully arched over the featured animals in the upper right area, a mother rhino and her calf are carefully depicted in brilliant detail in the lower left quadrant.
Every coin in the Rwanda Wildlife series features the same reverse design of the Rwandan coat of arms and official seal, and an inscription written in the native tongue of a Rwandan tribe that has resided in the Rwandan area for hundreds of years. In addition, the reverse side also displays the face value of 50 RWF Francs.

The 2012 Rwanda 1 oz Silver African Rhino BU is a perfect addition to any coin enthusiasts collection and is an absolute must-have for anyone’s Rwanda Wildlife series collection.
