African Wildlife Series Minting Characteristics. Weird and doubtful as their origins are, there is no question that the African Wildlife Series is anything but the highest quality mintage from one of Europe’s highly professional mints. These African coins are mostly produced in the international 1 troy ounce weight with a diameter of approximately 1.6 inches or 40 millimeters, the precise size of most official coins. The silver they contain is verifiably 99.9 percent pure, possessing the same fineness as silver used in American Silver Eagles, Mexican Libertads, and most other contemporary bullion coins. Some Silver Elephants are finished to proof standards rather than simple uncirculated quality, adding even more to their value. Proof coins are double struck to produce extremely crisp detail and deep, highly dimensional relief, then polished to a mirror sheen, traits that all Silver Elephants exhibit. LIMITED TO 5000 PIECES.
