2020 Australia Zoo Series – Sumatran Tiger 1oz .999 Silver Bullion Coin
The beautiful but critically endangered Sumatran tiger is featured on these 2020 silver investment coins and is the first in the Australia Zoo series. With guaranteed precious metal content and quality, these investment coins are struck to the Royal Australian Mint’s brilliant uncirculated finish. The grace, power agility and endurance is displayed elegantly on these silver coins.
The Sumatran tiger is the rarest of all tiger subspecies, found only on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. They are the smallest of the tigers with males weighing an average of 120kg. They can be distinguished by the heavy black stripes on their orange coats. Their habitat is diverse ranging from mountain to sea-level forests.
With their native habitat greatly reduced and under threat from poaching, Sumatran tigers are listed as critically endangered. Fewer than 400 individuals are estimated to remain in the wild. The Australia Zoo, located at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, has an active project underway to conserve the beautiful but vulnerable Sumatran tiger, aiming to protect the species for the future. A number of Sumatran tigers live at the Australia Zoo, where they help to raise awareness and funds, and contribute to global understanding of the species.
The extraordinary elegance, grace, beauty and power of the Sumatran tiger is artistically rendered on these gold and silver investment coins, perfect for regular and first-time investors.
