Why purchase this flawless 2019 Big 5: Elephant Platinum Proof coin?
The South African Mint has introduced an exciting new series celebrating the majestic creatures of the African wilderness known as the Big Five. The first design of the series commemorates the African Elephant. This 2019 dated proof coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9995 fine platinum with a diameter measuring 32.69 mm. Mintage is limited to just 1,000.
Ingenious Elephant Design
A lone elephant is depicted on the obverse, with the inscription "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2019" sweeping below. The inscription is divided by a framed representation of the South African Coat of Arms.
Two elephants are illustrated on the reverse, each portrayed as half of a face, with a circular inset between them containing the inscriptions "TWENTY RAND," "1 OZ" and "PT 999.5." The cleverly designed double elephant image forms a herd when multiple coins are aligned.
Perfectly Graded Platinum Proof with Hand Signed Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 2019 South Africa The Big 5: Elephant 1 oz. Platinum Proof Coin a flawless Proof 70. The additional designation of Ultra Cameo (UC) describes the proof's amazingly sharp contrast between frosted and mirrored finishes. The coin is enclosed in a NGC protective holder affixed with a certification label hand signed by Tumi Tsehlo, the South Africa Mint's Managing Director.
