Why add this gorgeous South Africa Natura Series 1/2 oz. gold proof 2004 Caracal coin to your collection?
The Natura Series was introduced in 1994 as the South African Mint's first 24 karat gold coin series. Throughout the years, the series has been divided into small multi-year issues based on animal types. The Natura Wild Cats of Africa series included coins dedicated to the cheetah, the lion and the caracal. This 2004 dated coin is an homage to the caracal, which is also known as the African lynx.
Stunning Caracal Designs
Obverse: A close-up view of a caracal in an alert pose is illustrated on the obverse, with its mouth opened in a warning growl. A stylized interpretation of the landscape of the South African savanna appears beside the creature, along with the inscription "SOUTH AFRICA 2004."
Reverse: The predatory nature of the caracal is demonstrated on the reverse, as it wrestles with its prey within the shelter of tall grasses of the savanna. The series title and denomination, "NATURA" and "R50," are boldly inscribed above, while "1/2 OZ. AU 999.9" curves discretely near the left edge of the design.
Virtually Flawless Proof 69 Ultra Cameo
This 2004 South Africa Natura Series 50 Rand coin celebrating the Caracal is judged to be in nearly perfect Proof 69 condition by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). In addition to an incredibly sharp strike and beautifully finished surfaces, the coin features an exceptional amount of contrast between its frosted design elements and mirrored backgrounds, for which it earned the designation Ultra Cameo (UC). The 1/2 oz. gold proof coin is presented in a sonically sealed NGC protective holder with a colorful South African flag style certification label.
