Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a brand new 2022 silver reverse frosted bullion coin featuring the Lion, King of the African Savannah. The coin is the first of its kind issued on behalf of the Bank of Sierra Leone.

The design on the coin features the head of a Lion styled as though it is an African mask with a special rim featuring an African pattern.

Featuring a Lion as the first silver bullion coin from Sierra Leone seem particularly apt since the name Sierra Leone means ‘Lion Mountains’ or ‘Mountains of Lions’. Pedro de Sintra was among the first European explorers in this area and upon approaching the coast he heard lions roaring in the mountains and gave it the name ‘Serra Lyoa’ in Portuguese, which translates Sierra Leone.
