After the successful first edition of the Big Five series from South Africa, the Lion follows in the footsteps of the Elephant. South Africa's Big Five coin series includes elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, minted one after the other by the South African Mint.
An impressive lion's head and South Africa’s coat of arms are depicted on the Lion gold coin in proof quality.
The obverse shows next to the denomination 'FIFTY RAND', the weight '1oz', the fineness 'Au 999.9' and two half lion heads.
If you place two coins next to each other, the picture merges into a lion's head. If you place several coins next to each other you can see a whole pack of lions.
The strictly to only 500 pieces worldwide limited Big Five Lion 1 oz gold proof coin is presented in the original box of the South African Mint, including a certificate of authenticity.
