"The animals known as the "Big Five" - Elephant - Lion - Buffalo - Rhino - Leopard - are considered emblems and ambassadors of this culturally rich country and represent the African fauna. The fourth issue is dedicated to the Leopard. The motive shows a detailed close-up of the head of an adult leopard. The inscriptions "SOUTH AFRICA", "BIG FIVE 2023" and the South African coat of arms are also part of the design. The reverse shows two halves of a leopard's head. Placing two of these coins next to each other gives a full close-up portrait of a leopard. When several of these coins are placed next to each other, an entire pack of leopards appears. In the center, the denomination "FIVE RAND", the weight "1OZ" and the fineness "Ag 999" are shown.

Together with lion, tiger and jaguar, the leopard is one of the most graceful and powerful big cats. As a true survival artist, the lithe hunter can be found in the primeval forests of the continent as well as in mountains, savannahs and semi-deserts. The Big Five II Leopard silver coin in uncirculated quality is limited to only 15000 pieces worldwide and is delivered in an illustrated blistercard of the South African Mint."
