The fourth release in this adorable series features white lion cubs.

The white lion is found in the Timbavati region of South Africa. While the colour of their coat is a white, blonde colour, much lighter than the tawny African lion, they are in fact the same species. Their white coat is a result of a recessive gene carried by both their parents. As a result, a lioness can give birth to both white and tawny coloured cubs in the same litter.

Coin details
The coin’s reverse features two coloured white lion cubs playing in the grass in the savannah.

This coin is housed in a classic Perth Mint presentation case within a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
