The 2018 Colour Coin range represents the beautiful fauna and flora of the Waterberg Biosphere, situated in the Waterberg district in Limpopo. As the name implies, the Waterberg serves as a water reservoir for this arid region, with four main river catchment areas providing water to an area of over 40 000km2. The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve contains low mountain ranges and escarpments, with poor soils and a relatively low level of economic activity. Habitats are sufficiently represented to ensure that the current high biodiversity is maintained, and the low human density ensures large areas of unspoiled wilderness and open spaces.
