Why purchase this 2021 R5 South Africa 1 oz Silver Proof Big 5 - Buffalo?

This Proof Silver Buffalo brings to a close the South African Mint's Big 5 Series. The collection features five coins, each of which celebrates one of the five most difficult African animals to hunt on foot. This low mintage coin is perfect for collectors who love animals, as well as those who like unique design elements. That's because the reverse, like other coins in the series, is designed with a bisected image that enables the holder to see a full buffalo only when two coins are held side by side.

  • This issue is 5 Rand legal tender in South Africa.
  • This proof is part of a mintage of just 3,000 pieces.
  • This proof is the fifth and final issue in the Big 5 Series.
