The Series II first release is dedicated to the African Elephant.

  • The perfectly graded coin includes a Big 5 themed certification label.

Innovative Elephant Design

Obverse: The obverse features a close-up rendition of a single elephant. The South African Coat of Arms is located below, between the inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA" and "BIG FIVE 2021."

Reverse: The reverse is adorned with a pair of elephants, a bisected portrait of each. This ingenious design creates the visual illusion of a herd of elephants when several coins are positioned side-by-side. A circle at the center is inscribed "FIVE RAND," "1 OZ" and "AG 999."
