The name ‘Hippopotamus’ comes from the Ancient Greek meaning ‘river horse’ and despite closely resembling more of a large pig, the Hippo’s closest living relatives are whales and porpoises. Yet even with its stocky shape and short legs, it can still easily outrun most humans.

In the wild, Hippos have an average life span of around 40 years, but this increases to around 50 years in captivity. In the wild, they usually live in herds of around 10-20 individuals, led by one dominant male, with all other members being female, their young, or a few young non-breeding males.

The coin has been produced in magnificent High Relief in 2oz Proof Fine Silver. The design features the head of a Hippo in relief with the word “HIPPOPOTAMUS” whilst the obverse of the coin shows the coat of arms of the Republic of Sierra Leone. This is the second coin in the series and a further three coins will be released featuring: The Antelope, The Baboon and The Zebra.
