Jaguar

Price
$10

The largest cat in the Americas, the jaguar now occupies about 46% of it’s historic range (as of 2008).  As apex predators, Jaguars are also “keystone” species, meaning that their survival has a direct correlation to the larger balance of the ecosystems in which they currently survive. Jaguars are victim to habitat fragmentation and loss due to agriculture and rural development, and have historically been hunted for their pelts and as nuisance predators by cattle ranchers.

One in a series of nine, this original elongated penny was designed by Mazatl, and made on a machine created by Stuart O. Anderson and Justseeds member Shaun Slifer. While currently producing small runs of single-sided penny editions, the completed machine will produce double-sided pennies matching extinct and critically endangered animals with urban wildlife.

Please note: while these pennies were all cleaned prior to rolling, each will bear individual variations as a result of their former existence as circulated currency, showing various patinas and markings per penny.
