Welcome to Africa! The fourth and next stop on our journey to the 7 Summits takes us to Tanzania to one of the best-known mountains in the world. Not only is it an amazing natural spectacle with its 5895 m (19340 feet), the Kilimanjaro is also considered to be the highest freestanding solid rock on earth! It is an eyecatching statement in Africa’s landcsape. Imagine the panaromic view those two pioneers had in 1889 as they conquered the top of this mountain in the midst of the wild African nature.
Following the sophisticated techniques of the previous issues, Kilimanjaro will be minted in highly detailed, three-dimensional topographic relief. It will reflect the green savanna, pure volcanic rock and the ice-covered summit called Kibo with a refined partial color application. This 5 oz silver coin with a diameter of 65 mm is limited to 777 pieces and captures a unique contrast with outstanding smartminting© effects. Enjoy a miniature numismatic wonder of Africa!
