    Description

    The theme “Nature’s Families” was first introduced on the pure gold Natura coin series in 2011 and featured the Meerkats of the Kalahari.

    In 2012 Africa’s most endangered mammal is depicted, the African Painted Wolf also known as the African Wild Dog.  Their scientific name Lycaon pictus is derived from the Greek for “wolf” and the Latin for “painted”. Each animal has an irregular mottled coat, the tan, black and white patterns unique to each individual.


    Although their behaviour is similar to that of the wolf of the northern hemisphere, they differ from dogs and wolves in that they have only four, not five, toes on each foot. Their large rounded ears are characteristic and contribute to an extremely acute sense of hearing. The common obverse depicts the silhouetted shapes of a pack of African Painted Wolves at a river.


    The reverse of the R20 (1/4 oz) Natura coin portrays two hunters feasting on their prey.  These slim, long-legged carnivores collaborate as a team to chase and wear out their prey, once exhausted the antelope is killed fast and efficiently. After a successful hunt, the returning pack members are greeted with characteristic chirping sounds by those who remained at the den and will regurgitate meat to feed the dominant female, the pups, and other pack members.
