A brief annotation
Dedicated to the most beautiful animals leaving in the wild, the coins from the “Wildlife Family” series are not only struck in ultra-high relief, but also embellished with authentic SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. The edition “American Buffalo” honors the Africa’s only wild cattle species, and one of the ‘Big Five’ mammals that used to be very popular among trophy hunters.
