Originally targeted by big-game hunters on the African continent, Africa’s Big Five species have since become the focus of conservationist work designed to bring these symbolically important species back from endangered status. The South African Mint commemorates these efforts with the Big Five coin series, one of whose most extraordinary entries is this 2020 Proof South African Big Five Rhino Silver 2-Coin Set now on offer from Provident Metals.
The coins in the 2020 Proof South African Big Five Rhino Silver Set are specifically designed to be displayed in pairs, making the set a perfect purchase for the avid collector or wildlife enthusiast. It comes in a luxurious wooden box and a specially-designed protective double capsule, along with a Certificate of Authenticity confirming the coins’ silver contents and proof-quality luster. Each shipment is fully insured by Provident Metals against any possibility of your item going astray or being damaged in transit.
The coin’s obverse side is dominated by a detailed portrait of a Rhino in close-up. Below is an inset official coat of arms with the inscriptions “South Africa” and “Big Five 2020.”
The reverse side is dominated by opposite halves of a Rhino’s face: when the coins are set next to each other, this crafty design forms a composite image of multiple Rhinos. A central inset bears the inscriptions “Five Rand,” “Ag 999,” and “1 oz.”
Big-game hunters actually originated the term the Big Five, meant to denote the most prized and dangerous targets of their hunts to be found on the African continent. More recently, the Big Five have become subjects of cultural celebration and appreciation beyond their value to hunters, with a conservationist movement bringing attention to their intrinsic value and the need to preserve their populations. The Rhino, an acutely endangered member of the Big Five, has recently begun to rebound in numbers as a result.
