Following the remarkable success of the platinum release within the renowned Big Five Series, the South African Mint has returned with brand new platinum coins featuring the majestic African elephant. As one of the largest land animals on Earth, the African elephant has unfortunately seen its population decline by 90% in the past century due to the ivory trade. Now, you have the incredible opportunity to honor this magnificent creature by acquiring the 2023 South African Big Five Elephant 1 oz Platinum Coin, offered at Provident Metals.

When you order the 2023 South African Big Five Elephant 1 oz Platinum Coin, it will be meticulously packaged in an individual flip, preserving its condition during transit. For orders of 10 coins or more, they will be housed within protective acrylic tubes. Each coin in this offering is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, ensuring its remarkable quality.


The obverse side of the 2023 South African Big Five Elephant 1 oz Platinum Coin captivates with a grand portrayal of the African elephant in a commanding front-facing pose. Its majestic trunk and powerful tusks are showcased as it gazes toward the observer. Beneath this awe-inspiring depiction lies the emblem of the South African coat of arms. Inscriptions include SOUTH AFRICA, and BIG FIVE 2023.


On the reverse of the 2023 South African Big Five Elephant 1 oz Platinum Coin, you’ll find an enchanting display of two elephant heads placed side by side, creating a captivating visual.

The Big Five Series is a heartfelt tribute to Africa’s five iconic animals: the elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhinoceros. Beginning its journey in 2019 with silver coins, this series has now expanded to include gold and platinum editions, like the coin you’re exploring here. Unfortunately, these remarkable creatures are now considered endangered species. Specifically, elephants are at risk, with as few as 40,000-50,000 remaining in their natural habitat.
