Striking African Buffalo Designs

Obverse: Dominating the obverse is a finely detailed rendering of an African buffalo, which is shown at an angle. Below is the coat of arms of the issuing nation, South Africa. That country's name is inscribed to the left of the arms, while inscriptions to the right note the name of the series, "BIG FIVE," and the date, "2021."

Reverse: The reverse design shows a bisected African buffalo design with the two sides flipped. When two coins are placed next to each other, the holder gets a conventional look at the creature. In the middle of this face are two concentric circles that bear inscriptions of the coin's face value, "TWENTY RAND," weight, "1 OZ," and purity, "PT 999.5."

Impeccable PF70 UC FDI
