CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Cheetah

The Republic of Cameroon uses the Central African CFA Franc as its currency; it is the common currency of six independent states in central Africa: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The CFA Franc has both common and national issues. All common circulating coins are issued under the authority of CEMAC ("Communauté Économique et Monétaire de l'Afrique Centrale" - Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa) and have no issuing country. Separately, each member country can strike coins bearing its national symbols; these coins are legal tender in the other members of the bloc too.

Cameroon has authorised some foreign mints to strike coins under its issuing authority for investment or for collector's purposes. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, such as the internationally popular one troy ounce (1oz) of silver.

This coin is part of a series of bullion coins by the Scottsdale Mint featuring the wildlife of Cameroon, and portrays the Cheetah.

The mint says about it:
We are excited to announce the release of our latest 1 Oz Silver Proof Like coin featuring the magnificent Cameroon Cheetah. This stunning coin showcases the beauty and power of this iconic African animal, with a Cheetah standing on a hill and radiant light shining behind him. 

The Cameroon Cheetah is a rare and extraordinary species, known for its unmatched speed and agility. We have designed this coin to reflect the grace and majesty of this incredible creature, capturing its strength and elegance in a beautiful and unique way.
