More info

Leopard
The leopard (Panthera pardus) is one of the five species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. The leopard occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia and is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List because leopard populations are threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and are declining in large parts of the global range. In Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuwait, Syria, Libya, Tunisia and most likely in Morocco, leopard populations have already been extirpated. Contemporary records suggest that the leopard occurs in only 25% of its historical global range. Leopards are hunted illegally, and their body parts are smuggled in the wildlife trade for medicinal practices and decoration.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin shows the impressive face of a leopard. The Leopard is an excellent hunter capable of reaching a speed of 58 kilometres per hours. On top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “5 OZ .999 AG” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver, “MAUQUOY” – the Belgian Mint, “HAUT-RELIEF” – means high relief in French and “LEOPARD” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the Coat of Arms of the Ivory Coast, and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DE COTE D’IVOIRE” – the issuing country and “5000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
