Issued on behalf of Sierra Leone, this coins is produced in magnificent fine gold, which really shows the power of the animal and illustrates the appeal of these cats.

The cheetah is a large cat of the subfamily felinae and the fastest land animal in the world. As its long legs and strong hindquarters suggest, it is built for running. A cheetah can go from 0 to 60 miles an hour in only three seconds. These big cats are quite nimble at high speed and can make quick and sudden turns in pursuits of prey.

This big cat is the only one that cannot roar; in fact, it purrs. It has amazing eyesight during the day and can spot prey from 5 km away.

The cheetah’s coat is yellowish with black spots and it lives in open country where it spends a large part of its time crouched searching for its prey.

The coin has been produced in a stunning half gram fine gold. The second Big Cat gold coin features the head of a cheetah with the word “CHEETAH” incused and the words “BIG CATS” raised. As with the other coins in the “Big Cat” series, the denomination for the “Big Cats” is on the obverse of the coin.

Only 199 half gram Big Cat gold cheetah coins will be struck.
