The Big Five Series is introduced for the first time in 2019. The South African Mint celebrates Africa’s unique natural heritage by embodying the strength and beauty of the “Big 5” in this new series of fine-silver brilliant uncirculated legal tender coins. The coins will be issued every month, with the first installment in February 2019, featuring the African elephant. From its versatile trunk and imposing tusks, to ears that flap forward as a sign of intimidation, the African elephant is a symbol of majestic strength and family unity. It is also the largest living land animal on earth, and one of our most intelligent species. “The Big Five” term originated when big game hunters visited the shores of Africa to shoot for trophies, and locals warned them about the five most dangerous animals in Africa: the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, and Buffalo.

Product Details:

Each reverse of the proof coin bears the design of two halves of the face of an Elephant. When placed together, the reverses form a full face. The silver set is packaged in a revolutionary double capsule which houses the coins close enough to each other to form a full elephant face, and wide enough apart that the coins remain pristine and do not touch. The double capsule set is packaged in a beautiful box made of walnut bark with a glossy piano finish bearing a digital print of the majestic creature on top.
