Why does this exceptionally graded 1/10 oz. gold proof 2004 South Africa Natura Caracal coin belong in your collection?
The 24 karat gold Natura series was introduced by the South African Mint in 1994. The groundbreaking series was the Mint's first to be produced with 24 karat gold. Each release has been dedicated to an animal native to Africa. This 2004 dated coin is a tribute to the caracal (African lynx), a predatory creature known for its unusual black-tufted ears.
Magnificently Rendered Caracal Imagery
Obverse: A meticulously detailed portrait of a caracal appears on the obverse, with its tufted ears and razor sharp teeth on full display. The inscription "SOUTH AFRICA 2004" is located beside the majestic creature, positioned within a stylized rendition of the South African savanna.
Reverse: Featured on the reverse is a caracal standing on the bank of a pond, as it stretches forward for a refreshing drink of the rippling water. The inscription "1/10 OZ. AU 999.9" curves above, while the series name "NATURA" and the coin's denomination "R10" appear below.
