Exceptional Lion Imagery
A gorgeous, angled view of a lion dominates the obverse, with the South African Coat of Arms below. The inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019" curve beneath the image.
Two partial lion faces are illustrated on the reverse, with the inscriptions "FIVE RAND," "1 OZ" and "AG 999" at the center. When multiple coins are positioned together the completed faces of a lion pride are formed.
