Big 5 Safari Wildlife Coins Return in Cupro-Nickel Set From Pobjoy Mint

After the recent success of the immensely popular Big 5 series, the Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce that the Big Five coins are now being released in Cupro Nickel.

If you are planning a safari to Africa, the Big Five represents safari royalty – the Elephant, the Lion, the Leopard, the Rhino and the Buffalo. Originally used as the term to describe the five most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot, this term has stuck and is now, thankfully, used to described the five ‘must-see’ animals if taking a safari as hunting falls out of favor. These unique and incredible animals are impressive in their own right and if you are lucky enough to witness any of them in their natural habitat, it will remain with you for years to come.

These coins have now been produced in Cupro Nickel. Each coin features the head of one of the Big 5 which are the Elephant, Lion, Rhino, Leopard, and Buffalo styled as though it is an African mask. The special incused rim features an African pattern to continue the theme. This stunning set makes an incredible collection featuring the wildlife that anyone visiting Africa would love to see.
