With the release of the Big Five II. Series, the South African Mint continues the success story of a coveted classic. The series again includes a total of five coins, all dedicated to South Africa's impressive wildlife. The animals known as the "Big Five" - elephant - lion - buffalo - rhinoceros - leopard - are considered emblems and ambassadors of this culturally rich country and represent the African fauna. Accordingly, the significance of this coin series is great. The second issue is dedicated to the lion. The motif of the silver coin shows a detailed close-up of the head of an adult lion. The inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA", "BIG FIVE 2022" and the South African coat of arms are also part of the design. The reverse shows two halves of a lion's head. Placing two of these coins next to each other gives a full close-up portrait of a lion. When several of these coins are placed next to each other, an entire pride of lions can be seen. The denomination "FIVE RAND", the weight "1OZ" and the fineness "Ag 999" are shown in the center. The African lion (Panthera leo) is the largest and most important land predator in Africa. Due to its enormous strength and dignified appearance, the lion is generally considered the "king of beasts" - a designation that originates from old fairy tales and fables. Since time immemorial, the big cat has stood as a symbol of power and dominance and has adorned countless coats of arms and flags to this day. The impressive lion roar can be heard up to 8 kilometers away and is used for communication within the pride members. In the wild, the lion can live to be over 20 years old - but to this day the threat from poachers is still very high. The delivery of the limited to only 15,000 copies Big Five II. Lion silver coin in stamp gloss quality takes place in a high-quality blister card of the South African Mint.
