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.
