Why order this R20 South Africa 2020 1 oz Platinum The Big 5 - Elephant?
The phrase "The Big 5" captures the imagination of travelers and adventurers alike. It originally referred to the five African animals that are most dangerous to hunt on foot, but today the term is not limited to hunting. Following the success of a similar silver program, the South African Mint now embarks a new platinum series to celebrate these iconic creatures. This coin was struck from 1 oz of .9995 fine platinum.
Exquisite Elephant Designs
An elephant looks into the eyes of the holder. Shown at a slight angle, the animal's large head and massive tusks are executed in fine detail. At the bottom of this face is the coat of arms of South Africa. Joining it are the inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA," "BIG FIVE," and "2020."
On the reverse is a unique bisected elephant design. It offers a closeup look at the head of this beloved animal. The two sides of the face are reversed such that a complete look at a single face appears when two of these coins are placed side by side. In the middle of this face are two concentric circles. inscriptions on the exterior circle note the face value, "TWENTY RAND," and purity, "PT 999.5," of the coin, while its weight, "1 OZ," is inscribed on the inner circle.
