    2011 Natura: Natures Families 

    The Meerkat Proof 1 oz 24 carat Gold coin.

     

    The 2011 Natura coin series features “Nature’s Families” and depicts the popular Meerkat Family. The common obverse of this series shows part of a family in their typical watchful stance, stretched high on their back legs to observe all and sundry on the desert’s horizon.

    Meerkats are a type of Mongoose. The name “Meerkat” is the Afrikaans version of the English name, Marsh Cat. However, Meerkats do not live near marshes and they are not cats! They are found in the southern part of Africa which is dominated by the Kalahari Desert. Their scientific name is Suricata suricatta.

    The reverse of the 1 oz Natura portrays a family of Meerkats, ever alert and watchful. The families may grow as large as 40 strong and each Meerkat in the gang, has its own important role to perform and skills to teach the pups.
