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

Engage your sense of adventure with this last issue in the South African Mint's Big 5 Series. Each coin in the series celebrates one of the five most dangerous African animals to hunt on foot. This one features the African buffalo. Like other coins in this series it bears a unique bisected design that only reveals a complete look at the featured animal when two coins are viewed next to each other.

  • This coin is 5 Rand legal tender in South Africa.
  • This coin was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin is part of a mintage of just 3,000 pieces.
  • This release marks the fifth and final issue in the South African Mint's Big 5 Series.
  • The reverse design is bisected, meaning that the holder sees the full creature when two coins are viewed side by side.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this coin Proof 70.
  • NGC certified this piece Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue.
  • Grading information is provided on a Silver Krugerrand label that was hand signed by Tumi Tsehlo.

Striking African Buffalo Designs

Obverse: An African buffalo is shown at an angle in stunning detail on the obverse. Below is the coat of arms of the issuing nation, South Africa. Inscriptions along the rim note the name of the issuing country, "SOUTH AFRICA," the name of the series, "BIG FIVE," and the date, "2021."

Reverse: Like other coins in the series, the reverse bears a unique bisected design that shows two buffaloes side by side. The holder only sees a full single buffalo when two coins are placed side by side. At the center of this face are two concentric circles in which there are inscriptions of the coin's face value, "FIVE RAND," weight, "1 OZ," and purity, "AG 999."

Flawless PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signature / Silver Krugerrand Label

This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70, which means that it appears perfect under 5x magnification. It was also certified Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Day of Issue (FDI). The UC designation means that it exhibits particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields. The FDI certification is only given to coins that were submitted for grading through an exclusive process. This information is provided on a Silver Krugerrand label that was hand signed by former South African Mint Managing Director Tumi Tsehlo.
