Why add this perfectly graded South Africa Natura Series 2004 1/4 oz. Gold Caracal proof coin to your collection?

In 1994, the South African Mint introduced its first 24 karat gold series. Titled Natura, the series celebrates the beauty and majesty of animals native to Africa. In 2002, the Mint launched a three-year series within the series, dedicated to the Wild Cats of Africa. The honorary cat of the 2004 release was the caracal. Also known as the African lynx, the most distinguishing feature of the caracal is its long, black-tufted ears. The creature's name of "caracal" is derived from the Turkish word "karakulak," which translates as "black ear."

  • This 2004 South Africa Natura Caracal coin is struck from 1/4 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold.
  • The coin is minted with a spectacular proof finish.
  • The coin measures 22.0 mm in diameter.
  • The coin is considered legal tender in South Africa with a value of 20 Rand.
  • The impeccably graded coin includes a colorful patriotic label.
  • Final mintage is reported to be only 1,407 pieces.

Gorgeously Detailed Wildlife Imagery

Obverse: The obverse depicts a caracal with its signature tufted ears raised in an alert position. A stylized rendition of the wildcat's savanna habitat appears in the background, with the inscription "SOUTH AFRICA 2004" cleverly integrated into the landscape.

Reverse: The reverse illustrates a standing adult caracal looking back protectively towards its seated kitten, with barren branches in the background. Inscribed "R20," "NATURA" and "1/4 OZ. AU 999.9" below.
