Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2019 South African Mint Big 5 Lion coin?

This bullion release from the South African Mint is the second design of the Big 5 wildlife series. Struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, the coin features an ingenious tribute to the African Lion. Mintage of the 2019 Lion coin is limited to 15,000.

Breathtaking African Lion Design

A single, beautifully detailed lion is depicted on the obverse, with the Coat of Arms of South Africa between the inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019" below.

Featured on the reverse is a pair of lions, with a circular emblem at the center inscribed with "FIVE RAND," "1 OZ" and "AG 999." The image is unusual, depicting lion halves; however, the design creatively morphs into a pride of lions when several coins are placed side by side.
