The Design

The obverse showcases the elephant, one of the five largest African animals in its natural habitat. Beneath this depiction, in a circle, the Coat of Arms of South Africa and the words: “SOUTH AFRICA,” “BIG FIVE 2022.”

The reverse displays two close-up depictions of the elephant’s face. The inscriptions on this side, set on a central circle, refer to face value, weight, metal content, and fineness. They read: “FIFTY RAND,” “1 OZ,” and “Au 999.9.”

The Big 5 Series I

The first release of the Big 5 Series I happened in 2019, through a limited mintage of 15,000 silver coins. The coin series' chosen motif refers to the African continent's five largest native animals, heavily hunted over the years before the environmental efforts to preserve them.

The collection debuted with the bush elephant depiction, followed by the African lion, the Rhino, the Leopard, and the Buffalo, all struck from 2019 to 2021.

Now, the series has come to a new release. Starting with the elephant, the 24k Gold Big 5 Series will have further strikes every five years, following the same sequence of animals.
