The South African Mint is very pleased to announce the fourth release of this remarkable 5-coin series, featuring five of the most widely known African animals.

The new 2020 2oz Big Five Leopard & Krugerrand (Leopard Privy) Silver Proof Set edition is a powerful example!
As part of this series, the mint is also presenting an ultra-limited two-coin Silver Proof set including one new 2020 2oz South Africa Big Five Leopard Silver Proof and one 2020 1oz Silver Proof Krugerrand with a leopard privy mark. Spotlighting the strikingly intriguing Big Five design, this 2020 2oz Big Five Leopard & Krugerrand (Leopard Privy) Silver Proof Set edition provides a great opportunity to have two premier South African offerings presented together as a set.
The Big Five
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.
In many ways the history of the Krugerrand is a story of firsts. The gold Krugerrand was introduced in 1967 as the first modern gold bullion coin. It was immediately received with much praise for its beauty, fineness, and style. The Krugerrand was also the first 1 oz gold coin produced in the world. In 2017, the Krugerrand was released in a 1 oz Silver format for the first time. Interestingly, the Krugerrand is the only legal tender government-issued bullion coin that does not declare a set face value.
The Krugerrand also continues to maintain the first position among its peers as the most recognized bullion coin brand world-wide. For 50 years its design has proudly displayed the powerful portrait of South Africa’s first president, Paul Kruger. The graceful, bounding springbok antelope provides an iconic South African nature scene.
The included 2020 1 oz Silver Proof Krugerrand has been prepared with a small leopard privy mark positioned above the antelope image on the reverse. This pairs very well with the Big Five Silver Proof Leopard 2020 edition.
The South African Big Five series design has been extremely well-received by the global precious metals community. This highly-collectible fourth edition Proof Set is certain to move quickly! This 2020 2oz Big Five Leopard & Krugerrand (Leopard Privy) Silver Proof Set has an ultra-limited mintage of only 1000 Limited Edition Presentation editions for worldwide distribution. The two coins come in mint capsules and presented in a very handsome, wooden display box with Certificate of Authentication. Please reserve your desired quantity quickly!
