Do You Have What It Takes to Tackle the Largest Member of the “Big 5?”

Some of the world’s most dangerous wild animals live in Africa and during the 1990s, The South African Mint released its Natura series that paid tribute to the five deadliest members within this lethal rogues’ gallery. The series was a humongous success and had collectors clamoring for more. The Mint finally acquiesced and released a new Big Five series in 2019. Once again, collectors could not get enough of these limited-edition coins. And so, in 2021 the Mint began a SECOND Big Five series featuring the same animals — the Elephant, Lion, Black Rhinoceros, Leopard and Cape Buffalo.

The World’s Largest Land Animal

Leading off as the inaugural coin in the Big Five Series II is this magnificent Elephant, the world’s largest land animal, struck in one Troy ounce of highly-pure 99.9% silver by the prestigious South African Mint — the same mint that brings us the iconic gold and silver Krugerrands. The obverse of this legal-tender 5-Rand coin depicts the massive head of a big bull elephant as if he’s looking down his long nose at you. The reverse features a unique bisected image of an elephant’s profile. When multiple coins are placed side by side it creates a complete close-up portrait of an elephant. If you dare, put on some thin white gloves, and trace your fingers across the rugged design… it almost feels like you’re caressing the torso of a real elephant!

Perfect Proof Condition — From Among The First Coins Issued!

Each 2021 South Africa One-Ounce Big 5 II Elephant available in this offer comes in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning they were expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields! In fact, each coin available here has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) ion perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that these proofs are First Day of Issue (FDI) coins, meaning that they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date authentication. Each will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a black display core and encapsulated with a special Big 5 label.
