The first representative of Africa’s “Big Five” collection has entered the numismatic market with a cachet worthy of the largest land mammal living on the planet. The elephant presented on the obverse was reproduced with attention to every last detail, and the proof finish only emphasized the care of the incredible engraving.
The employees of South African Mint managed to make one of the region’s most distinctive inhabitants look like the real thing. In addition to the main protagonist of the obverse, it features the markings – South Africa and the Big Five 2021 – along with the South African coat of arms in the center. The coin was made from 1 ounce of the truest 999.9% gold.
