Why order this R50 South Africa 2019 1 oz Gold Big 5 Lion?

The South African Mint is offering collectors a stunning new option with the Big Five Series. The coins celebrate the African animals that are considered most dangerous to hunt on foot. This Gold Lion is perfect for those who find themselves captivated by the King of Beasts. Part of a mintage of just 600 pieces, this coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold.

Exquisite Lions Designs

On the obverse, the holder gets a closeup look at a lion as it stares off into the distance. It exhibits an aura of powerful calm, while every detail of its head, from its whiskers to its proud main, can be carefully examined. At the bottom is the South African coat of arms. It features a shield with two men clasping hands that is crested by a demi-secretary bird. At the bottom is a motto that means, ""Diverse People Unite" in |Xam." "SOUTH AFRICA" is inscribed to the left of the arms along the rim, while "BIG FIVE 2019" is inscribed to the right.

The reverse features a stunning design feature that is being used for this series. The face of a lion is bisected such that two coins held together reveal a standard look at the creature. Its haunting eyes look directly into those of the holder, inspiring both fear and awe. At the center of the design are two concentric circles. The outside one offers the coin's face value, "FIFTY RAND," and purity, "AU 999.9." At the center is the coin's weight, "1 OZ."

Flawless PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signature Label

The Managing Director of the South African Mint signed the label on which the grading information for this coin was provided. That grade includes Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70, which is reserved exclusively for coins that appear flawless under 5x magnification. It also includes Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue certification. UC indicates that a coin exhibits very sharp contrasts between deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices, while FDI is reserved for coins that were submitted through an exclusive process.
