Following the resounding success of the 5 oz Big Five Lion coin in 2016, we are thrilled to unveil the much-anticipated release of an extraordinary high-relief coin in an even more impressive 1-kilo version! This new rendition offers a fitting tribute to the “king of the jungle,” capturing the essence of its commanding presence and voluminous mane with unparalleled detail and magnificence.

The lion, a symbol that has transcended cultures across Europe, Asia, and Africa, stands as an enduring icon that has captivated humanity for millennia. Revered for its majestic appearance, the lion holds a special place in our collective consciousness. Its symbolism extends beyond borders, representing power and royalty in various cultures. To be likened to a lion was considered one of the highest compliments, emphasizing strength, leadership, and regal authority.

In 1875, the esteemed engraver Maarten Mauquoy laid the foundation for a legacy that endures to this day. His engraving workshop in Belgium became synonymous with exceptional craftsmanship, and the seal “Handmade in Belgium” serves as a testament to the enduring commitment to quality upheld by Mauquoy. This tradition of excellence continues to be a hallmark of the coins bearing his influence.

This masterpiece is a fusion of art and craftsmanship, capturing the awe-inspiring presence of the lion in a form that is both visually stunning and profoundly symbolic.

As we anticipate the unveiling of this exceptional coin, we invite collectors and enthusiasts to partake in the legacy of the “king of the jungle” through a numismatic masterpiece that transcends time and borders.
