The 2019 South African Big Five Elephant Proof Silver 2-Coin Set is an extraordinary entry in the well-respected Big Five commemorative series from the South African Mint. Designed to celebrate iconic and endangered African wildlife species, these high-qualities coins are generally known as must-haves for the discerning collector, and the intriguing design of this double set is a particular stand-out. It’s now available as part of an exclusive limited mintage through Provident Metals.
Featuring a truly unusual artistic concept specifically created for the viewing of the coins as a pair, the 2019 South African Big Five Elephant Silver 2-Coin Set sports a lustrous proof-quality finish with incredibly detailed and meticulous high-relief artwork. The coins ship with a Certificate of Authenticity in a customized double-capsule made to encourage displaying and viewing them as a pair. Provident Metals ships this item in a secure box fully insured against any possible damage or loss.
A lovingly detailed frontal portrait of an elephant dominates the coin’s obverse side. It’s joined by an inset South African coat of arms and the inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2019.”
Each coin’s reverse side features partial close-ups of a pair of elephants, and the unusual property of the design is that when the coins are set side-by-side, a third elephant’s head appears at the convergence of their combined artwork. The reverse design also bears the inscription “FIVE RAND Ag 999” and a circular inset reading “1 oz.”
The term Big Five once referred to Africa’s most dangerous animals to hunt, but it now applies to the most famously beautiful and iconic species whose majestic beauty is a driver not just of tourism, but of general appreciation for nature. The species celebrated in this coin series are presently endangered, and part of the South African Mint’s purpose in issuing these coins is to promote awareness and conservation efforts.
