A brief annotation The Natura pure gold coin series was introduced in 1994. Over the past 20 years this multi-international award-winning series has become one of the South African Mint’s most sought-after coin collections.  A new theme called “Nocturnal Hunters” commenced in 2014 and featured the leopard (Panthera pardus). Part of the famous Big 5, the leopard is one of Africa’s most beautiful yet fearsome creatures. Cunning and fearless, this solitary spotted cat hunts mainly by night. During the day one might be lucky to spot a leopard on a tree branch or lying in thick undergrowth. They are versatile and have adapted to a range of habitats, from semi-desert to tropical rain forest. Although one of the most numerous of Africa’s big cats, they are considered “near threatened” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) “Red List of Threatened Species”. Many leopards are killed each year for their fur and body parts.  This pure gold Natura coin pays tribute to this cunning and fearless cat.

Хотелось бы увидеть в живую эту монету. Интересно как в живую смотрятся эти насечке на морде леопарда?
