Striking African Buffalo Designs

Obverse: On the obverse is a stunningly detailed look at an African buffalo. The bottom of this face bears the coat of arms of South Africa. The name of the issue country, "SOUTH AFRICA," is inscribed to the left, while the name of the series, "BIG FIVE," and date, "2021," are noted to the right.

Reverse: The reverse design offers another look at the animal, this time head on. Two of the creatures are displayed side by side such that the holder only sees a complete look at one by looking at two coins side by side. Inscriptions noting the coin's face value, "FIVE RAND," its weight, "1 OZ," and its purity, "AG 999," are included in two concentric circles in the middle of this face.
