    Description

    1oz South Africa, Big Five Lion, 2019, Silver - The new Big Five Series from the South African Mint is built around the historic association with animals on the African continent. The term Big Five originally applied to these animals, because of the difficulty and danger involved in hunting them on foot. In the modern age, these African icons are considered must-see creatures in the wild and something tourists from around the world come to see.

    Image of a male lion with his massive mane and powerful physique. Mankinds interactions with the lion date back as far as cave paintings left in modern-day France 17,000 years ago. The lions historic range once included all of sub-Saharan Africa, portions of the Middle East, and vast stretches through southern Europe and down to the tip of the Indian subcontinent.

    Reverse

    Image of two lions facing forward. This extreme close-up is a common design element to the series and focuses on two lions who are so close together it is almost impossible to tell where one beast ends and the other begins.
