Germanys BH Mayer Mint has produced a stunning series called the Rwandan Wildlife Series that has featured some of the most incredible animal species from the continent of Africa. While most of these designs have featured ferocious creatures, for the 9th release, the mint decided to showcase the lovable meerkat. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Rwandan Meerkat 1 oz Silver Coin is available in perfect condition from Provident Metals.


  • Ships in a protective plastic slab from the NGC!
  • 9th coin in the Rwandan Wildlife Series!
  • Given a perfect Mint State 70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation!
  • Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Given a face value of 50 Francs as legal tender in the country of Rwanda.
  • Obverse features the brand-new meerkat design for 2016.

The Rwandan Wildlife Series debuted in 2008 with a coin design honoring the gorilla. This original release had a low mintage of only 5,000 coins. The series has since grown, and we are now seeing the ninth coin being released for 2016. Each year, the mint increases the production of these coins.


The obverse face showcases the meerkat design created just for these 2016 releases. While the background theme remains the same and still showcases the African continent, the meerkat takes the place of all the animals that have come before it. On this face of the coin, you will also see the year of issue and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.


The reverse image is that of the official Rwanda crest. Engravings on this side of the coin are in the local Kinyarwanda language, and they include the name of the Central Bank of Rwanda, the national motto, and the face value of the coins in Francs.


BH Mayer Mint is a privately owned mint that was founded in 1871 by Bernard Henrix Mayer. Today, the mint is known for producing stunning coinage under the fifth-generation owners.
