Comments

This issue represents the fourth coin of the highly popular Rwandan Lunar series, which began in 2017 with the release of the hugely successful Rooster coin. Minted as brilliant uncirculated at the BH Mayer's Mint, the coin is struck in .999 fine silver and packaged in individual sealed plastic flips. The face value of RWF50 is fully backed by the government of Rwanda. Each coin of this series is only minted until the next coin is released, making each coin exclusive and ensuring low mintages.
