You can't get far in collecting international coins without learning something new nearly every day. So this 2021 specimen from the African Ounce series features the okapi, a hoofed land animal which partially resembles a zebra, but whose closest genetic relative is the giraffe. This somewhat awkward, but gentle creature is native to central Africa, protected by a conservation project established in 1987. This unique, gentle creature has captured the affection of world viewers and visitors in recent years.
Another factor in coin collecting is an awareness of the ephemeral nature of international borders. So, last we checked in on Rwanda, it exists as the current Republic of Rwanda by a constitution adopted in 2003. The National Bank of Rwanda manages its economy, and the official currency is the Rwandan franc, which, as is the case with many colonized African countries, was adopted from the former European overseer.
The African Ounce is an annual release of a bullion silver ounce, always changing its design, and honoring one country or subject in turn. The obverse of this coin depicts the National Seal of Rwanda and the face denomination of 50 Rwandan francs - in native Rwandan, naturally.
