Why buy this 2020 R25 South Africa 1 oz Silver Natura?

South Africa's Natura Series was first issued in 1994, but it wasn't until 2019 that a silver uncirculated coin was added to the issue. Collectors took strongly to the new issue, which followed the paleontology theme that began in 2018. Part of the latest edition, this piece was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver at the South African Mint. It is part of a mintage of just 15,000 pieces.

Stunning Dinosaurs Design

The coin's obverse design is reminiscent of Jurassic Park. It features an open mouthed skeleton head of an Archosauria dinosaur. "RISE OF THE DINOSAUR," "SOUTH AFRICA," and the date, "MMXX" (2020), are inscribed below, with the dinosaur identified by the final inscription, "ARCHOSAURIA," at the bottom.

On the reverse are a pair of Coelophysisa dinosaurs. One is shown at an angle running, while the head of the other is shown closeup. The dinosaurs were indigenous to South Africa. The name of the series, "NATURA," and the dinosaurs, "COELOPHYSIS," are inscribed below, as are the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ AG 999." The face value of the coin, "25 RAND," is also included on this face.

Flawless MS70 One of the First 296 Struck First Day of Production with Black Core Holder

This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Mint State 70, which is reserved exclusively for coins that appear perfect under 5x magnification. It was also certified to be among just 296 pieces struck on the first day of the coin's production. The coin comes set in a black core holder.
