THE South African Mint, a subsidiary of the South African Reserve Bank, has released the Big Five Series II collectible coin collection. The series is a sequel to the award-winning 2019 collection. The Big Five Series II coins will be available in silver, gold and platinum and released every six months. The mint said the elephant coin would lead the launch and be followed by the lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. The Big 5 coins had become a best-selling range, superseded only by the Krugerrand, it said.
