2022 1 oz South African Platinum Elephant Coin

Famous for the Krugerrands, which made history among the most traditional mints, the South African Mint brings a new edition of the Big 5 Series of Coins in silver, gold, and platinum versions.

The motif that names the series focuses on the five most imposing animals of the continent, which got beautiful depictions on both sides of the coin. 

Besides the impressive designs, each coin contains 1 oz of .9995 pure South African platinum, carefully struck to make these coins an excellent purchase for investors who care about high levels of bullion and collectors who admire some numismatics in platinum coins.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 1 oz of 999.5 pure platinum;
  • It is the first bullion coin exclusively minted from South African platinum;
  • Multi-year strikes
  • Face value of 20 rands, backed by the Republic of South Africa;
  • The motif featured on both sides is the bust elephant;

The Design

The obverve features the bust elephant in a frontal view. Below the animal, the Coat of Arms of South Africa appears in a central circle, surrounded by the inscriptions: “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2022.”

The reverse has a double close-up of two elephants side by side. On a central position, the engravings correspond to the coin’s face value, weight, metal content, and purity: “TWENTY RAND,” “1 OZ,” “Pt 999.5.”

The Big 5 Series

Released for the first time in 2019, the Big 5 Series came to the bullion market through a limited mintage of 15,000 silver coins. Successfully accepted by investors and collectors, the series got gold and platinum versions in the same year.

Aiming to celebrate the continent’s natural fortune, the collection depicts the five largest animals that have the South African continent as their habitat. The bust elephant, the African lion, the rhino, the leopard, and the buffalo got sequential strikes from 2019 to 2021.

Now, this beloved series comes to a new edition available to the market every five years, starting with the elephant design.
