Cleverly Crafted Buffalo Imagery

Obverse: A stunning portrait-style rendition of a Buffalo appears on the obverse, with the South African coat of arms located below. Inscriptions include “SOUTH AFRICA” and “BIG FIVE 2023.”

Reverse: The reverse is dominated by the partial images of two Buffalos. Their massive, curled horns surround a circular badge positioned between the creatures containing the inscriptions “FIVE RAND,” “1 OZ” and “AG 999.” The unusual graphics ingeniously reveal a herd of buffalos in forward motion, when multiple coins are aligned.
