Cape Buffalo are the most dangerous of the big five and are among the most dangerous animals in the world. Earning the nickname 'Black Death,' these impressive beasts are known for their unpredictable and highly aggressive personality and are responsible for over 200 deaths yearly. Once a Cape Buffalo has decided to attack and starts charging up to 35 MPH, the fight's outcome is already determined.


The Big Five II series is the second edition of the South African Mint's highly successful series. It depicts the five most dangerous and prestigious big game animals to hunt in Africa: the bush elephant, the African lion, the rhino, the leopard and the buffalo. This series is highly valued and appreciated among investors and collectors alike!


The South African Mint (SAM) was established in 1890 after the discovery of gold in the South African territory. Throughout history, the mint was annexed to the British Empire, becoming a branch of the Royal Mint from 1890 to 1923. After the independence of South Africa, it reopened officially as the SAM in 1941. The SAM is responsible for minting the South African rand on behalf of the South African Reserve Bank. The prestigious Rand Refinery (the first refinery in the world to market investment-grade bullion items) supplies all precious metals the mint uses. In recent years, the mint has expanded its product line, including the successful Big Five and Big Five II series.
