Limited mintage of only 5,000

The Orangutan is characterised by its ape-like shape, shaggy red fur, long arms and grasping hands and feet.  This ‘man of the forest’ is now only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in south-east Asia.

The destruction of habitats through commercial logging, forest clearance for oil palm plantations and agriculture, have contributed to this animal’s need for protection.  In addition, uncontrolled fires and human exploitation present further challenges.  It is more important than ever to safeguard the future of this well-loved species.
