The obverse of 2022 Solomon Islands Silver Animals of Africa Rhino Shaped Coins features Queen Elizabeth II. In this Fourth-Generation portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley, we see the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions on the obverse read Solomon Islands, Elizabeth II, 2 Dollars, 2022, 1 oz 999.9 Ag. Also on the obverse is the coin’s unique serialized number.
On the reverse of 2022 1 oz Solomon Islands Silver Animals of Africa Coins, there is a black rhino design. This full-body depiction shows a solitary male heading for his favorite watering hole. From the lines and curves in the skin to the complexities of the face, this rendition perfectly captures the majesty of these creatures.
While not yet extinct, the black rhino did suffer a tragic 98% population decrease between the 1960s and 1990s. However, thanks to the tireless efforts of conservationists in Africa, their nearly extinct population has more than doubled its numbers over the last 20 years. But despite an estimated 5,600 black rhinos alive today in Africa, their population is still meager compared to what it once was. Poaching and black-market activities continue to threaten their existence, meaning conservation efforts must not cease if there is to be a hopeful future for this iconic species.
