The 2023 follow-up to the acclaimed Split View American Alligator offers a unique look at one of the largest and most dangerous animals in this colored, double sided ultra high relief silver coin. The hippopotamus, commonly known as a hippo, inhabits rivers, lakes, and mangrove swamps in Africa. Its name is derived from the ancient Greek for River Horse. Despite its stocky shape and short legs, it can reach speeds up to 30 km/h (19 mph) over short distances.

Though they look kind of cute with their roundish shape, one should not underestimate these animals as Hippos are well known for their aggresive territorial behavior. Females are particularly defensive if anyone gets between them and their young.
