Face Down South Africa’s Fearsome Black Rhino

Some of the world’s most dangerous wild animals live in Africa. Not long ago the highest mark a sportsman could attain was being able to hunt down “The Big Five” animals on the continent – the Elephant, Lion, Black Rhinoceros, Leopard and Cape Buffalo. Each animal was quite capable of killing humans, and they often did – even the herbivores! Now you can hunt down these beasts without ever leaving the comfort of your easy chair thanks to the South African Mint’s release of a new series of coins dedicated to these animals.

The latest release in series is this magnificent Black Rhinoceros struck in one Troy ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver by the prestigious South African Mint – the same mint that brings us the iconic gold and silver Krugerrands. It’s also the same mint responsible for the immensely popular Natura series that began in the 1990s and featured the same Big 5 animals.

The obverse of this legal-tender 5-Rand coin depicts a close-up image of the critically endangered Black Rhinoceros that is native to only Eastern and southern Africa. The reverse features a unique bisected image of a Rhino’s profile. When multiple coins are placed side by side it creates a complete close-up portrait of a Rhino staring straight into your eyes. If you dare, put on some thin white gloves and trace your fingers across the rugged design… it almost feels like you’re caressing the thick, folded skin of a real rhino!

Your 2020 South Africa One-Ounce Silver Big 5 Rhino will come in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. It will also arrive in its original government packaging consisting of a custom box from the South African Mint.

With an extremely low limited edition of just 3,000, only a few select collectors will even get the opportunity to own one of these coins! A century ago, people like Teddy Roosevelt would have donned a pith helmet and tracked down these animals as prizes for their trophy rooms. Today, people go on safaris in hopes of simply catching a glimpse of these often-endangered animals. Avoid the heat and take pride in bagging one of these coins from the comfort of your home simply by clicking it to your cart!

LATEST COIN IN SOUTH AFRICA’S NEW BIG FIVE SERIES – This coin is the third release in the South African Mint’s new series of coins dedicated to “The Big Five” animals of Africa – the Elephant, Lion, Black Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo – displaying unique portraits of these exotic creatures.

INNOVATIVE EYE-CATCHING DESIGN – The obverse of this coin depicts a full-bodied image of a male rhino. The reverse features a unique bisected image of a rhino’s profile. When multiple coins are placed side by side it creates a complete close-up portrait of a grumpy rhino.

STRUCK IN HIGHLY-PURE SILVER – Each Big 5 Rhino coin has been struck by the South African Mint in one ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver and measures 38.725 mm in diameter.
