An African bush elephant is depicted on the obverse side of 2020 South African Big Five Elephant 1 oz Platinum Coins. The first design in the Big Five Series, the African bush elephant features again on the first release of the platinum coins. Here, the large animal stands facing the coins viewer with its trunk extending down beyond the edge of the design field and its tusks reaching to the very edge of the field. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include South Africa and Big Five 2020. The South African coat of arms is featured in the bottom-middle field between the two inscriptions.


Two African elephants are showcased on the reverse of the 2020 South African Big Five Elephant Platinum Coins. In this design, the two creatures stand so close together side-by-side that it appears the ear in the middle of the design is shared by the two. Inscriptions in the central circle read Twenty Rand, 1 oz, Pt 999,5.


Each of the coins in the Big Five Series shares common design approaches. Whether it is the African elephant, the African lion, or one of the three other designs, the series depicts a single member of the species on the obverse along with the national coat of arms. Two members of the species feature close together in a blended design on the reverse.
