The Natura Series is a popular collection that features varying wildlife from South Africa. Its famous not just for its beautiful depictions of South African animals, but also because every coin in the series is minted in 24-karate gold. When the series launched in 1994, it was the first time the South African Mint had produced a series with such high purity levels. Provident Metals currently offers 1999 Proof South African Natura 1/2 oz Gold Kudus for online purchasing.
When you order 1999 Proof South African Natura 1/2 oz Kudus in this online Provident Metals listing, you will receive a coin protected inside a plastic slab. These coins were sent to the professional grading service NGC and assigned a grade of 69. This comes close to a perfect grade. Also, note the fact that these coins are Ultra Cameo. This means that upon grading, NGC determined they had a greater degree of frost on the design elements than a normal proof coin.
On the obverse of 1999 Proof South African Natura 1/2 oz Gold Kudu you will find an image of a Kudu. Designed by A.L. Sutherland, this stunning portrait is in 3/4 profile, which allows you to take in the details of the Kudus face. Youll also see a glimpse of the Kudus mane, which is one of the ways to differentiate the Greater Kudu from the Lesser Kudu. Youll find inscriptions on the coins face reading 1999 SOUTH AFRICA.
The reverse side of 1999 Proof 1/2 oz Gold Kudus includes both a cat predator and a Kudu. The cat is leaping through the air towards the Kudu, who is depicted in a defense position. They appear to be on a desert terrain with rocks. Youll see inscriptions that read NATURA, 1/2 OZ AU 999.9.
The South African Mint issued its first coin in the Natura Series in 1994. For the first five years of the series, each release featured one of the countrys Big Five animals. In 1999, the series transitioned to its Monarchs of South Africa phase. The inaugural coin was Kudu found in this listing. Every single coin in this remarkable series contains 24-karat pure gold and is released with a variety of weight options.
