Why purchase this 2019 South Africa 1 oz Gold The Big 5 Elephant Proof?
Animal lovers are sure to appreciate this Gold Big 5 Elephant Proof. The coin is the first in a new series by the South African Mint that is set to feature each of the animals that top travelers' lists. The term "the Big 5" originally came from hunters to describe the most dangerous animals to hunt on foot, but tour operators have since adopted it to appeal to travelers hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the world's most alluring creatures. Part of a mintage of just 600 pieces, this coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold.
Exquisite Elephant Designs
On the obverse, the holder gets a closeup view of an elephant that faces slightly to their left. The holder gets an excellent view of the creature's face and a partial view of its trunk and massive tusks. Below is the coat of arms of South Africa. Rim inscnriptions read, "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019."
On the reverse is a unique bisected elephant design. The design was created such that holder could get the full view of the elephant by holding two coins side by side. Inscriptions in a circle at the center read, "FIFTY RAND," "1 OZ," and "AU 999.9."
Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signed Label
Tumi Tsehlo, the South African Mint's Director, signed the label on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided the grading information for this coin. That information includes the company's highest grade, Proof 70, which is reserved for coins that are flawless as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the coin First Day of Issue, which means that it was submitted through an exclusive process, and Ultra Cameo, which indicates that its contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields are especially strong.
