DESCRIPTION

Panthera Leo is a large, powerfully built cat that is second in size only to the tiger. Lions are unique among cats because they live in a group or pride. Lionesses play a significant role in pride, as they are pivotal to its prosperity, growth and survival. On the coin, the lioness is shown sitting proudly and in the background, there is a gilded moon. As they hunt primarily at night, they represent the connection to the divine feminine lunar energy of the moon.
