The first piece in the "Representatives of the Species" series, the 2 ounce silver coin showing the chameleon is a work of extreme high relief. The design incorporates a chameleon, a lizard that has fascinated scientists and ecotourists for generations. It can disguise itself by changing its skin tone to avoid being eaten or to lure a mate of the opposite sex. This 2 oz silver chameleon coin is black proof finished, numbered, and struck in ultra high relief, evoking images from real life. The packaging for the coin is environmentally friendly; it's made entirely of cardboard, paper, wood, and linen, all of which are renewable resources. A limited run of 500 super high relief 2 oz silver coins featuring the chameleon will be released with a certificate of authenticity and environmentally friendly packaging.
