The fastest land animal in the world, Cheetahs can go at an astonishing rate of 112 kilometres per hour! That's fast!
Unfortunately, their speed has not stopped these big cats from edging toward extinction. Officially regarded as vulnerable by the International Union of Conservation it is thought that only 7000 Cheetahs remain in the wilds of Arica.
This one ounce, 99.9% pure silver issue is the second in an international trade coin series from the Royal Australian Mint, in partnership with Australia Zoo. Featuring the Cheetah in mid-stride, each Australian legal tender coin is limited to a mintage of 25,000 - with most of those already shipped overseas to the large precious metal sellers in Europe and Asia!!
