The Great Migrations – Zebra 1oz Silver Coin begins this incredible new coin collection from New Zealand Mint.
This exciting collection celebrates one of nature’s impressive wonders, when millions of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter.
The great Serengeti migration is the annual movement of vast numbers of zebra and wildebeest. The timing of the migration is dependent on rainfall and the purpose is to seek fresh grazing plains and water.
Each year around 1.5 million wildebeest and 300,000 zebra start their long, clockwise journey from Tanzania's Serengeti Plains to Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve. This difficult journey, that covers the vast distance of around 2,900 km (1800 miles), brings with it severe dangers, and many animals are lost along the way.
The coin's reverse shows an engraved illustration of a zeal of migrating zebras, against a backdrop of their Serengeti habitat. A few zebras are highlighted in colour.
This stunning coin comes in a compact printed rectangular coin case, which incorporates an impressive, printed scene of this great migration. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity is presented in the packaging.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2016 Great Migrations Zebra 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
