5 Francs 1961 Mali

That's one mean looking hippo! Wouldn't want to mess with him!

The 1961 5 / 10 / 25 Francs coins from Mali all feature animal heads on their obverse - hippo, horse, lion, respectively. I think they make for a neat little set!

@Kingz: Do you have the others?

Here's an $8 non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) "triple-threat" animal coin from Canada's Royal Canadian Mint ( RCM) - 2007 $8 Fine Silver Chinese Coin.

The primary design elements on the reverse are a bat, a deer and a dragon.

In 1995, the Royal Canadian Mint ( RCM) released a commemorative silver dollar marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of Canada's first National Park - today's Banff National Park. A moose is the primary design element of the coin's commemorative reverse.




You can dig a bit deeper into this coin's commemorative theme by visiting: Canada's 1985 National Parks Silver Dollar.

2021 Chinese New Year of the Ox:

The Royal Mint normally issues these as a silver bullion 1oz. coin with a nominal face value of 2, but for the last few years they've struck the same designs as 38mm cupro-nickel coins with a face value of 5. I wanted to get the silver bullion issue but can't see it anywhere - I phoned the Mint and they told me they wouldn't be bringing one out this year. I'm not sure if the guy I spoke to was right - I guess a lot of their staff are working from home at the moment - but I've bought the cupro-nickel version anyway. The obverse is just the standard Jody Clark portrait of the Queen.

Here's another eagle on a coin, this time it's one from the Royal Canadian Mint ( RCM). The coin was released in 2005 as part of a five-coin series that highlighted several of Canada's National Parks. The commemorative design was created by Susanna Blunt; Ms. Blunt was also responsible for the portrait of QEII on the obverse.

That is a lovely design. No writing (except the initials), just imagery.

@Rothery/jbuck: I agree! The multiple levels of frost on the coin's devices really make the overall design pop!

Here's another animal coin from the Royal Canadian Mint ( RCM) - 2103 Life in the North. It is a $3 silver coin with a proof finish and was issued as part of the RCM's Centennial of the Canadian Arctic Expedition series.

The coin features a pair of beluga whales along with a larger bowhead whale in the midst of being hunted by Inuit fishermen / hunters (their boat and kayaks are seen at the coin's rim extending from the 12 o'clock to roughly the 4 o'clock position).




A brief discussion of the coin can be found here: 2013 Life in the North Silver $3 Coin.
