When you purchase one of these 2022 South African Big Five Series II Lion 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in this series are individually packaged in protective blistercards with a capsule space at the center. The trifold card includes information on both the African lion and the Big Five Series II coins.


The obverse side of the 2022 South African Lion 1 oz Silver Coin comes with a depiction of the male lion. The African lion is the second-largest living cat behind the tiger and is, quite oddly, known as the King of the Jungle. Male lions have manes around their head and neck. The average lion pride has just one adult male living amongst a group of cubs and females. Inscriptions include SOUTH AFRICA, BIG FIVE, and 2022. The South African coat of arms features on this side of the coin as well.


On the reverse face of 2022 South African Big Five Series II African Lion Silver Coins is a depiction of two lions. These front-facing effigies show two lions so close together that the two lions seem to share one mane. This same design is featured on the reverse of the coins in the Big Five Series. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read FIVE RAND, 1 OZ, AG, and 999.


The Big Five Series was available from 2019 to 2021 with images of the African elephant, African lion, leopard, buffalo, and the rhino. All five of these members of the Big Five species from the African continent reappear in the Big Five Series II collection.
