The Big Five is a term originally coined by hunters. Upon realizing the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo were Africa’s most difficult game to catch, they gave them their own special name. Today, the Big Five are recognized not just by hunters, but also by environmentalists, activists, and anyone who simply appreciates the majestic quality of these animals. 2022 1 oz Silver Big Five Shaped Coins are the perfect tribute to these cherished creatures of nature.
All of the 2022 1 oz Republic of Chad Silver Big Five Shaped Coins arrive housed in a Big Five illustrated box. The box contains a tab that when pulled, reveals this stunning high-relief specimen.

On the obverse of the 2022 1 oz Antique Silver Big Five Shaped Coin is a stunning image of the Big Five walking in silhouette towards a Baobab tree. The sun is seen setting behind them. Below this in large lettering are the words Africa Big Five. We also see the Republic of Chad’s Coat of Arms, as well as the coin’s denomination, purity, weight, country, year, and serial number.
The reverse side of the 2022 1 oz Silver Big Five Shaped High Relief Coins features a stunning collage of the Big Five mapped onto the African continent. At the top we see the lion, leopard, and buffalo, each rendered in exquisite detail. Towards the middle is the elephant, facing towards the continent’s east side. Then on the lower portion, we see the rhino, facing directly at us.
