The South African Mint announced the launch of the second animal in the Big 5 collectable coin range.

The Lion was launched on the 1st of March, coming several months after the issue of the Elephant which was launched in August 2021.

The Big 5 Series II unveils the long-awaited second portrait design of the obverse, while the reverse design remains unchanged from series I. This split portrait features a unique construct, which reveals a complete portrait of a lion only when placed side by side with another coin. In this way, an entire pride can be built by placing multiple coins next to each other.

This limited coin series is available in fine-silver, 24ct gold and platinum.
