Each of the 2020 1 oz Silver South African Big Five Leopards available here comes with beautiful presentation packaging. The coins are housed individually inside of presentation blistercards. The foldout cards have detailed information on the coin release, the Big Five Series, and the leopard species. Each coin is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The leopard is one of five extant members of the Panthera genus. The genus consists of all the large living predatory cats, including the lion, tiger, and panther. Leopards are one of the larger members of the species, but their size and coloration can vary drastically based on natural habitat and food sources. For example, leopards can have coats that are yellow and golden, tawny, or even all black. Leopards with all-black fur still have the rosettes that are characteristic of the cat’s fur pattern, but it is harder to see unless up close to the creature.
The obverse of 2020 1 oz Silver South African Big Five Leopards comes with a depiction of a leopard. The upper third of the creature’s body is found in the design element with the shoulders on the right and its neck and head extending toward the center of the design field. Below the image of the leopard is the national coat of arms for South Africa.
On the reverse side of the 2020 Silver South African Big Five Leopard are two leopard faces. The two faces are extremely close together, with details including the rosettes in its fur and the whiskers on its face. The center of the design element includes the weight, purity, metal content, and face value of the coin.
