The design of the coin captures the essence of Bateman's Into the Light - Lion painting, portraying the king of the jungle stepping into the golden glow of early morning light. The lion stands in the Ngorongoro Crater, where cold nights and misty mornings are followed by the warmth of the rising sun. The solitary lion, while not the typical hunting machine, exudes confidence and dominance as he surveys his surroundings. This scene reflects the delicate balance of wildlife and the challenges they face in their natural habitats.
Robert Bateman, in his artist's description, paints a vivid picture of the lion's plight and his role in lion society. As a champion of wildlife conservation, Bateman's work goes beyond art, as he educates and raises awareness about the importance of protecting our natural world.
