Why purchase this 3-Piece 2021 1oz Silver/Gold/Platinum Big 5 Buffalo Set?
This three piece set from the South African Mint consists of one of each of the coins in the final release of the Big 5 Series. The Big 5 are the most dangerous African animals to hunt on foot, and each release in the series features one of them. The series is particularly noteworthy not just for the beauty of the coins but also for the unique reverse designs, which are bisected and show a full image of the featured animal when two coins are placed side by side.
Exquisite African Buffalo Design
Obverse: These three coins share the same designs. On the obverse is a finely detailed rendering of an African buffalo shown at an angle. Below the animal is the South African coat of arms. To the left of the arms along the rim is the name of the issuing country, "SOUTH AFRICA," and to the right are the name of the series, "BIG FIVE," and date, "2021."
Reverse: The coins bear bisected designs on the reverse. Collectors can only see the bison square when two coins are placed next to each other. In the middle of this face are two circles that bear inscriptions of the particular coin's weight, purity, and face value.
Perfect PF70 UC FDI with Tumi Signature Labels
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded all three coins in this set Proof 70. That means that they look flawless under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the coins Ultra Cameo for their deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices. The coins were also designated First Day of Issue, which means that they were submitted to NGC through an exclusive process. Grading information is provided on labels that were hand signed by Tumi Tsehlo, the former Managing Director of the South African Mint.
