The latest design in the Big Five Series from the South African Mint is available with the image of the endangered rhinoceros. The African continent is home to two of the five subspecies living today: the white rhino and the black rhino.

A rhinoceros is found in the center of the obverse field of the 2020 South African Big Five Rhino 1 oz Silver Coin. The two rhinoceros species that live on the African continent actually consist of six subspecies in total between the white rhino and the black rhino. Both species can reach weights of upwards of 5,000 lbs., with male white rhinos representing the heaviest among the species, though its black rhino counterpart can also reach average weights around 4,000 lbs.


Two rhinos stand closely together in the reverse design of the 2020 South African Big Five Rhino Silver Coin. In the center of the field is a circle that contains inscriptions of Five Rand, 1 oz, Ag 999.


The white rhino species is split into two subspecies of its own: southern white and northern white. The southern white rhino is the most populous species of rhino in the world with 20,400 members alive in the wild. The northern white rhino is the single most endangered in the world with just two living females in captivity. The black rhino, as a whole, is also endangered, has four subspecies that include the south-central, south-western, east-African, and west-African. Black rhino population numbers dropped dramatically in the second half of the 20th century from 70,000 in the 1960s to just 2,410 in 1995. Poaching was, and continues to be, a great threat to the long-term population of rhinos.
