Gorgeously Detailed Buffalo Design

Obverse: A portrait of a lone Buffalo is featured on the obverse. The coat of arms of South Africa is centered below, separating the inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2023.”

Reverse: A pair of forward facing Buffalos is depicted on the reverse, each appearing as a partial portrait, with their impressive horns curving around a circular inset inscribed with “FIVE RAND,” “1 OZ” and “AG 999.” When several coins are positioned side-by-side, the innovative design transforms into an approaching herd of buffalos.

Flawless Mint State 70
