Introduction

This exciting new series is the first gold bullion offering since the 22 carat Krugerrand was introduced in 1967. 

Prestige Bullion’s Big 5 Series I gold bullion coins follows the successful Big 5 Series I collectable coins, created together with the South African Mint as a celebration of Africa’s unique natural heritage, strength and beauty.

The Big 5 24 carat gold bullion range offers an exciting new investment portfolio option, and a vehicle to preserve lasting wealth.

The term “Big Five” originated when big game hunters came to Africa to hunt the most imposing animals for trophies, before conservation efforts became a priority.

A new Big 5 24 carat gold bullion coin will be introduced every five years, beginning with the elephant, followed by the lion, the rhino, the leopard and lastly, the buffalo.

The African elephant is a symbol of strength and family unity. It is the largest living land animal and one of our most intelligent species.

South Africa was the largest gold mining nation during the mid 20th century, contributing almost 50% to the annual global mine supply. To more easily sell this abundant supply of gold, the South African gold mining industry came up with the idea to develop a circulating gold bullion coin that would exclusively contain gold from the South African mines. The idea was approved by the South African Central Bank which authorized the creation of the legal tender Krugerrand gold coin. The Krugerrand gold coin was struck for the first time in the early 1970s by the South African Mint and would prove to be the most successful gold bullion coin ever to be issued by the Republic of South Africa.
