Rhinoceros
A rhinoceros, commonly abbreviated to rhino, is one of any five extant species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae, as well as any of the numerous extinct species. Two of the extant species are native to Africa and three to Southern Asia. The term "rhinoceros" is often more broadly applied to now extinct relatives of the superfamily Rhinocerotoidea. Members of the rhinoceros family are some of the largest remaining megafauna, with all species able to reach or exceed one tonne in weight. They have a herbivorous diet, small brains (400–600 g) for mammals of their size, one or two horns, and a thick (1.5–5 cm) protective skin formed from layers of collagen positioned in a lattice structure. They generally eat leafy material, although their ability to ferment food in their hindgut allows them to subsist on more fibrous plant matter when necessary. Unlike other perissodactyls, the two African species of rhinoceros lack teeth at the front of their mouths, relying instead on their lips to pluck food.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin shows the impressive highly detailed and high relief image of the face of a Rhino. 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 “RHINO” – 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, “2019” – the year of issue and “5000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
