Leopards are immediately recognizable thanks to the spots on their fur called rosettes—named due to their distinctive rose shape. They are strongly associated with their speed, with some capable of zipping across the African countryside at 35 MPH. They are also extremely versatile when it comes to diet, as they are willing to subsist on everything from deer to bugs. To date, there are about 250,000 leopards remaining in the world, which makes their conservation status Near Threatened.
The obverse of 2022 1 oz Somalia Silver Leopard Coins features the Somalian coat of arms. This national design adopted in 1956 features two leopards standing on spears as they hold up a shield.
