On the obverse side of the 2019 1 oz Silver South African Big Five Lion Coin is the image of a large male lion. This beast stares off into the distance with its large mane prominent in the design. South Africa’s coat of arms symbol is at the bottom. A unique seal, the South African coat of arms incorporates two oval, egg-shaped elements at the bottom capped by a secretary bird at the top. This all combines to imply the rebirth of the great nation of South Africa.
The reverse face of 2019 Silver South African Big Five Lion Coins includes the design of two lion heads. The duo stares directly at you with their manes and whiskers overlapping to the point that the creatures appear as a singular two-headed beast rather than two separate lions.
