Take a fascinating journey through the African night and meet some of Africa’s rarest and most remarkable wildlife. Each animal depicted on these coins is nocturnal, meaning it sleeps during the day and is active at night. It is also an endangered species. To produce a truly nocturnal effect, each coin is struck with a blackened finish and the eyes of the animal in the Proof Sterling Silver edition sparkle with genuine diamonds, as if caught in torchlight on a dark moonless night. Due to the difficulty of making blackened coins inset with diamonds, only 10,000 sets will be produced worldwide. Don’t miss your chance to save Africa’s nocturnal animals – order now, before they become extinct!




Pobjoy Mint was established in the middle ages in Great Britain and today makes superior coins for special commemoratives and for governments.

Pobjoy has reputation as top coin designer and coin dieing techniques and for top quality packaging.


The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. The Company was recently granted permission to use the family Coat of Arms in which the Medieval Popinjay is the central motif. The Popinjay was a painted wooden parrot used in archery contests in the 14th century and the name Pobjoy is derived from this. The Latin motto 'OCULO CERTO' means 'with an unerring eye' and applies equally to the ancestor's prowess as a marksman, as to the Company's reputation for the high quality and precision of its products. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. The Company is now the largest private Mint in Europe.
