Coin design:

The coin’s reverse depicts the lion with his impressive appearance and large forest mane. You can see the lion’s thoughts about the transformation of his appearance since he was young.

The coin’s obverse side depicts the lion in his younger years drinking from the water. You can see how big and powerful it will become later in the reflection. It also depicts the Coat of Arms, with the same reflection in the water, and the inscriptions: “TANZANIA” (the issuing country), “2021” (the year of issue) and “1500 SHILLINGS” (the face value).


The lion is the largest cat of all, next to the tiger. The males have an impressive appearance with their large forest mane. Lions are at the top of the food chain in their habitat, whether that be the grasslands, the desert, or open forests. They play a vital role in balancing the abundance of herbivores such as zebras and wildebeests, which affect forests and grasslands.

Lions are the only felines that live in family groups for a long time. Usually, a group consists of about five related females, their young and an adult male. A group occupies its territory guarded by the male against rivals.
