Why purchase this South African Mint Big 5 Series II 2023 Buffalo 1 Oz. Silver Bullion Coin?

The fifth and final release of the South African Mint’s 2021-2023 Big 5 Series II is an homage to the African Buffalo. Similar to the Big 5 Series I (2021-2023), each coin in Series II is an individual tribute to a formidable creature of the African Big 5: the elephant, lion, rhinoceros, spotted leopard and buffalo.

  • This 2023 Buffalo coin represents the fifth and final release of the South African Mint Big 5 Series II.
  • The bullion coin containing one Troy ounce of 99.9% fine silver measures 38.72 mm in diameter.
  • The coin is minted with a spectacular Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) finish.
  • The 5 Rand denomination coin is issued as legal tender of South Africa.
  • The coin will ship in a beautifully illustrated buffalo-themed blister card package.
  • Mintage is limited to just 20,000 coins.

Handsome Big 5 Series II Buffalo Design

Obverse: A single Buffalo is illustrated on the obverse, above the coat of arms of South Africa. The national emblem is positioned between the inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2023.”

Reverse: Two buffalos are depicted on the reverse as forward-facing partial portraits. The gracefully curving horns of the buffalo pair form a frame around a circular inset that bears the inscriptions “FIVE RAND,” “1 OZ” and “AG 999.” When several coins are aligned, the portraits are completed, creating the intriguing illusion of an advancing buffalo herd.

Magnificent Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

This South African Mint Big 5 Series II 2023 Buffalo 1 Oz. Silver Coin is available from ModernCoinMart in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
