Known to many as simply the rhino, the rhinoceros is one of five extant species of odd-toed ungulates. Today, two of those species are native to the African continent, while three of them are native to southern Asia. The rhino is one of the largest terrestrial mammals alive today with the average rhino capable of reaching weights in excess of one tonne.
The obverse field of the 2020 1 oz South African Silver Big Five Rhino Coins includes the image of a singular rhinoceros. The name rhino means “nose-horned” in Greek and refers to the larger of two horns commonly found on the nose of the rhino. Though not typically aggressive toward humans, when threatened, the rhino is a formidable foe.
On the reverse side of 2020 1 oz South African Silver Big Five Rhino Coins is a depiction of two rhinos. The faces of these massive beasts are placed close together such that one body almost blends into the other. The center of the design field has an inscription of the face value, weight, metal content, and purity of the coin.
