The connection between a mother and her offspring is unlike any other. A heart-warming new series, titled Mother’s Love, captures this love in the animal kingdom, with the first release featuring a lioness and her cub.
The special bond between a mother lioness and her cubs is forged from when she withdraws from her pride to deliver them in seclusion.
With her newborns dependent on her for weeks after birth, the protective mother frequently relocates her young to prevent them from being detected by predators.
On return to her pride, the family of lionesses unite to raise the cubs and help them immerse in pride life. The love between a lioness and her cubs is tenderly expressed by affectionate displays of caressing and social licking.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 4,500 of these 2014 Mother’s Love – Lioness 1/2oz Silver Proof Coins in this packaging out of a maximum mintage of 6,000.
The coin’s reverse features a golden lion cub being nurtured by its mother among grasslands. The inscription LIONESS and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appear in the design. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date and the monetary denomination.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a display case and box-shipper portraying more stunning imagery.
