ANIMAL CHAMPIONS: RHINOCEROS BEETLE
A series we haven’t covered before I don’t believe, Animal Champions is a 1oz antique silver coin series from the Czech Mint that showcases record breaking animal species. Those that can fly, run or swim the fastest, grow to be giants, or carry great power, are all valid subjects.
The latest is the fascinating Rhinoceros Beetle, an insect so strong it would need a human to pick up 65 tons to be a proportional match. A very pretty design, this is one of four due this year, and joins four more issued through 2019. To bring us up to date, there’s an all new Coin Series Profile that features all of the six issues to date, which will be updated with the last pair as they’re issued. Available to order now with a mintage of 800, you can see more about them in the profile.
