Minted precious metal banknotes have surged in popularity among collectors over the past year. Consequently CIT’s Skyline Dollar series has already seen eight issues and the first lunar year silvernote was launched at the ANA show in August.
Now alongside the spectacular large Waldseemüller silver note, CIT proudly presents the first set of gold notes portraying the popular Big Five appropriately issued for Tanzania.
The notes measure 150×70 mm and are minted from 1 gram of fine gold. The five protagonists are pictured in beautiful detail as adult animals next to one their offspring. On the back, three shiny giraffe silhouettes wander across the Savannah near an acacia tree. Giraffes are the national animal of Tanzania.
