Marking the release of the Big Five II Series, the South African Mint continues to celebrate a cherished classic. This series, once again comprising five coins, pays tribute to South Africa's magnificent wildlife. These coins honor the "Big Five" animals – Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Rhino, and Leopard, revered as symbols and cultural ambassadors of this rich nation, representing the African fauna. Consequently, the significance of this coin series is immense.

The fifth coin in this series is dedicated to the Buffalo. The 1 oz gold coin's design captures a detailed close-up of an adult buffalo's head, featuring inscriptions such as "SOUTH AFRICA," "BIG FIVE 2023," and the South African coat of arms. On the reverse side, two halves of a buffalo head are displayed. Placing two of these coins side by side forms a complete close-up portrait of a buffalo, and arranging several coins creates an image of an entire buffalo herd. In the center, you'll find inscriptions for the denomination ("FIFTY RAND"), weight ("1OZ"), and fineness ("Au 999.9").

The Cape or African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a habitual grazer, residing in herds ranging from a few dozen to hundreds, typically favoring swampy areas and shaded grasslands near water sources. The buffalo is renowned for its distinctive, sweeping, curved horns, which can span up to 1.50 meters. The Big Five II Buffalo 1 oz gold proof coin is a limited edition, with only 500 pieces available worldwide, and it is presented in its original wooden box, accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity from the South African Mint.
