Why add this 1 oz Silver 2019 R5 South Africa Big 5 Lion to your collection?

Few terms inspire both fear and excitement quite like "the Big 5." The term was originally coined to describe the five most dangerous African animals to hunt on foot. It has since been adopted by tour operators as a means of luring travelers hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the world's most powerful creatures. This is the second of five coins in a series celebrating these animals. The series is being released by the South African Mint, with each coin struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver. This piece is part of a mintage of just 3,000 pieces. It will arrive in GEM Proof condition, which means that it was well struck.

Unique Bisected Lion Design

On the obverse is the face of a single male lion. Shown at a slight angle, this gives the holder the chance to get much closer to the creature than would be safe in the wild. The coat of arms of the issuing nation is included in a circle below. It is flanked by two sets of rim inscriptions, which read, "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019."

The reverse features an innovative design element that is the reason that most of these coins are being sold in pairs. Part of a lion's face appears on both sides of this face. When two of these coins are viewed side by side, they show a single lion's face. In the middle are two circles, the interior of which offers the coin's weight, "1 OZ." The exterior circle offers its face value, "FIVE RAND," and its purity, "AG 999."
