On the reverse of these South African Big Five Series II Buffalo 1 oz Silver Coins, you will see closeup views of two halves of a buffalo’s face. If you purchase multiple coins, you can line them side by side to form a complete picture of the face.
The Cape Buffalo is easy to identify thanks to its enormous curved horns. For adult male buffalos, these horns get so close to each other at the base that they actually fuse, forming a mighty head shield known as a “boss.” The female Cape Buffalos do not have such prominent horns, which allows you to differentiate them while on Safari. Also of note is that the greater the horn size, the higher ranking the Buffalo will likely be in the herd’s hierarchy.
