Product Description

The Big Five is synonymous with South African wildlife. These magnificent animals have been intrinsically linked to South African currency since 1988 when they were first used on the South African banknote range.

In 2021, the incredibly popular series returns in the Big Five Series II. The second of the Pride of Africa collection makes its debut. The Lion is universally known for its indomitable spirit as the King of the jungle, and symbolises royalty and strength in some African cultures, while the lioness represents femininity and motherhood.

About The Coins

The Big 5 Series II unveils the long awaited second portrait design of the obverse, which shows the lion in a different light from series I in that the focus is on the graceful beauty of these regal animals. The reverse design remains unchanged from series I. This split portrait features a unique construct, which reveals a complete portrait of a lion only when placed side by side with another coin. In this way, an entire pride can be built by placing multiple coins next to each other. The coins are once again available in three metals; silver, gold and platinum.
