A standout entry in the South African Mint’s Big Five series of commemorative coins, the 2019 South African Big Five Lion Proof Silver 2-Coin Set is intriguingly designed and packaged for side-by-side viewing and offers an artistic celebration of the majestic lion that makes it a must-have item for collectors. This exclusive limited mintage is now available from Provident Metals.
The creative concept behind the 2019 South African Big Five Lion Silver 2-Coin Set goes beyond its dazzling proof-quality finish and high-relief artwork. It also includes an intriguing side-by-side viewing design that its double capsule packaging exists to promote and ships with a Certificate of Authenticity in a secure box. Provident Metals fully insures this item against going astray during shipping or getting damaged en route.
The coin’s obverse side features an intricate portrait of a lion’s head with a full, flowing mane, accompanied by a South African coat of arms in a circular inset along with the inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2019.”
The reverse side of each coin shows opposite halves of a lion’s head converging on the center: at the edges, when viewed side by side, these artworks join to create the impression of a third lion’s head. The reverse design bears the inscription “FIVE RAND Ag 999” and a circular inset that reads “1 oz.”
Formerly a reference to the biggest and most dangerous animals to be found by hunters on safari, the term Big Five today references the same species as famous examples of the natural world’s majestic beauty. The lions depicted on these coins are currently representatives of an endangered species, and part of the purpose of the Big Five series is to raise awareness of the role that animals like the lion play in sustaining the natural order, and of the need for conservation.
