Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2019 R5 South Africa Big 5 Lion?
"The Big 5" is a term that originated with hunters to describe the five African animals that are most dangerous to hunt on foot. It has since been adopted by travel agencies and others to discuss some of the most sought after safari sightings. Now, the South African Mint has a series of coins that celebrate these fascinating creatures. This second issue in the series, the Lion, is part of a mintage of 3,000 pieces. It was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Stunning Lion Designs
Both faces of this coin bear exquisite lion designs. On the obverse, the face of a male lion is shown as an angle. The holder gets to examine his face and his mane in fine detail. Below is the South African coat of arms. That consists of a demi-secretary bird above an Or that is supported by elephant tusks and ears of wheat. At the bottom is an inscription that translates to "Diverse people unite." "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019" are inscribed along the rim.
The reverse features a two-lions design. Half a face is shown on each side such that two coins side by side would show a single face. In the center of this face are two concentric circles. The inner one offers the coin's weight, "1 OZ," while the outer one provides its face value, "5 RAND," and purity, "AG 999."
Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signature Label
Tumi Tsehlo, the Managing Director of the South African Mint, hand signed the label on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided its grading information. That information includes the company's highest grade, Proof 70, which indicates that a coin is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. It also includes Ultra Cameo certification, which indicates that a coin bears deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices, and First Day of Issue certification, which is given only to coins that were submitted through an exclusive process.
