The peaceful, yet protective, mammalian herbivore, the black rhinoceros is native to South Africa and can grow to weigh between 1,760 and 3,080lbs (800-1,400kg)! Black Rhinos spend their days under a tree or in a watering hole, in an attempt to stay out of the harsh African sunlight. Black Rhinos get their name not from their color, but rather from the shape of their upper-lip. Black Rhinos don a pointed upper-lip, which they use for foraging trees and bushes, using their pointed lip to grip branches and pull the leaves off and into their mouths. These impressive creatures are known for, and endangered now because of, their two horns, a small horn on their heads, and an enormous horn on their noses. A Black Rhinos nose-horn can grow to be five feet long!

Today, you can own your very own Black Rhino, by purchasing a 2012 Black Rhinoceros 1 oz proof silver coin from Gainesville Coins! Created by the Perth Mint, this is one of several animal species featured in the Wildlife in Need series.

The obverse of the Black Rhinoceros coin features Ian Rank-Broadley's profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscribed around the edges of the coin is the legend,"Queen Elizabeth II, 1 Dollar Tuvalu," and the mint year, "2012." The reverse features an impressive colorized image of a black rhinoceros and calf standing against the African Savannah. The reverse is inscribed, "Wildlife in Need, Black Rhinoceros," and features the weight and purity of the coin, "1 oz 999 Silver." The colored background shows an open plain, backed by a mountain range, and, in the foreground, stands a mother Black Rhino and her adorable calf. Below the image, the "Helping Hands" logo is featured in support of this endangered species.

Take the future of these majestic creatures into your hands by buying this 2012 Black Rhinoceros 1 oz proof silver coin, just as limited as the Black Rhino, and spread awareness of the world's dwindling animal species.
