This 2021 South African Buffalo Big 5 1oz Silver Bullion Coin comes in a protective Coin capsule with cert.


The South African Mint is very pleased to announce the fifth and final release of this remarkable 5-coin series. Each of the coin releases feature one of the five most widely known African animals. With this final release, the Big Five series has now featured the African elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and finally, the buffalo. Each coin is struck in .999 fine silver BU. This highly unique series is absolutely a must-have for fine bullion collectors

Originally, Big Five was associated with the five most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot. The term is now used to describe the five African animals that are considered must-see, each magnificently impressive. Tourists fortunate enough to view them in their natural habitat report that it is one of their most exciting memories. Sadly, these five animals are endangered. However, it is hoped that this series of bullion coins will help bring greater attention to their plight.

Currently, nature reserves are being set up all over Africa, providing these animals a safe habitat in which to live and thrive. Hopefully, through these and other efforts, generations to come will continue to enjoy the ability to observe and appreciate these animals in their natural habitat.

The obverse image of this 2021 1oz Silver South Africa Big Five Buffalo BU shows a close-up, left-facing head and neck profile of this magnificent, yet unpredictable and dangerous creature. Every nuance of this large, powerful animal’s head and face is shown in meticulous detail, especially its unique horns. The South African coat of arms is displayed in a circular inset at the bottom rim. Also, a highly-stylistic, flared rim-band includes the inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA” to the left of the coat of arms, and “BIG FIVE 2021” to the right. There could hardly be a more appropriate presentation of this large powerful creature for this South Africa Big Five series.

The reverse features an extreme straight-on, close-up head view of two buffalo positioned very closely together. This is a remarkable design, displaying with incredibly fine detail the powerful beauty of the magnificent African buffalo.
