When you examine each animal in South Africa’s Big Five, it comes as little surprise that they were chosen to represent the country’s most majestic creatures. The elephant is both the largest and heaviest animal on the globe. The cape buffalo has a notorious temper and is one of the most dangerous Big Five animals. The leopard is a brilliant hunter, though hard to spot due to its nocturnal prowls. The rhino, both white and black, has become endangered. As such, they are difficult to spot in the wild. But just a glimpse at these incredible herbivores will induce a sense of awe. Lastly, the lion carries an almost regal majesty from its appearance alone. They are without question the kings of the savanna.
The Big Five are shown the obverse of the coins in the 2019-2021 Silver Big Five 5-Coin Sets. Each coin depicts one of the five animals and also includes the South African coat of arms. Inscribed along the lower rim are the words South Africa Big Five, and the date of issue.
On the reverse field of the coins in the 2019-2021 Big Five 5-Coin Sets are depictions of each animal in extreme close-up. These artistic renderings of the animals almost make it look as if they are blending together. In the middle are the words Five Rand, 1 oz, Ag .999.
