A Cape buffalo is found on the obverse side of 2021 South African Buffalo 1 oz Silver Coins. In this magnificent rendering, the buffalo seems almost lifelike as it looks off into the distance with a pensive expression. Inscriptions on the obverse read SOUTH AFRICA, BIG FIVE, 2021. The South African coat of arms is also located on the obverse field.


The faces of two buffalos are shown on the reverse of 2021 South African Big Five Series I Buffalo 1 oz Coins. Because they are shown in such extreme close-up, only half of their faces are visible here. However, if you line up multiple coins, you can make out the entire face of each. Youll also see inscriptions on the reverse reading 5 RAND 1 OZ AG .999.


All coins in the Big Five series were struck at the South African Mint. This minting institution was established in 1890 by Paul Kruger following the Witwatersrand Gold Rush of 1886. Kruger, who became the first president of the South African Republic in 1883, is perhaps most famous for leading an uprising against the British in the Boer wars. Today, the South African Mint is responsible for producing the central Rand currency of South Africa as well popular collectible coins for local and international markets.
