Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue silver proof 2021 South African Mint Big 5 Series II Elephant coin?
The South African Mint is continuing its homage to the Big 5 of African wildlife, specifically the elephant, lion, black rhino, leopard and buffalo. Like the first series, the Big 5 Series II will celebrate the majesty of each animal on individual coins, which are planned for issue from 2021 through 2023, featuring newly designed imagery. The Series II first release is dedicated to the African Elephant.
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."
