Scottsdale are on a mission to catch up with their planned release schedule after the initial Covid-19 wave caused chaos, and the latest to see the light of day is the fourth in their African Leopard series issued for Ghana. The first coin debuted back in 2017 in one-ounce fine silver form with a fairly typical 60,000 mintage, but it was the 2018 release that exploded interest in the series.
That coin hit with a vastly reduced mintage of 8,500 pieces, and as you’d expect given the precipitous drop in numbers, sold out at the mint in a day! The 2019 coin came back with a sensible 25,000 mintage, but this years entrant is back down at 10,000 pieces. Hopefully, this will be the fixed number going forward as the confusing mintage variation that has befallen the Ghanaian Leopard range is not particularly desirable, to be honest.
