Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2019 South Africa R5 Big 5 Lion?

Share in the South African Mint's new Big 5 series with this Silver Lion. The series celebrates the five African animals that are considered most dangerous to hunt on foot. This edition features the king of beasts, which inspires awe and fear in all who come across it. This coin is part of a mintage of 15,000 pieces, each of which was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver. This coin comes in a blister pack and remains in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Breathtaking Lion Designs

The coin's obverse features the image of a lion looking out over all that belongs to it, which is to say, its domain. The closeup image is a traditional look, though unlike most others, it gives the holder the opportunity to examine the details of the animal's face, including its whiskers, its mane, and its powerful eyes. At the bottom of this face is the coat of arms of South Africa. It consists of a shield on which two men clasp hands that it crested by a demi-secretary bird. Flanking the arms are the inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA," which is to the left, and "BIG FIVE 2019," which is on the right.

The reverse features a bisected image of a lion's face. Coins in this series all feature these types of designs in which the animal's face can be seen oriented correctly by holding a pair of coins eye by side. The lion's captivating yet intimidating eyes stare directly into those of the holder, creating at once strong senses of awe and fear. At the middle of the reverse are a pair of circles in which there are inscriptions that offer essential information about the coin. Its face value, "FIVE RAND," and purity, 'AG 999," are inscribed on the outside circle, while its face value, "1 OZ," is at the center.
