Africa’s Big 5 are the undisputed super stars of any safari. The opportunity to see any of the Big 5 living wild and free in their natural habitats will be at the top of most travellers bucket list. The term ‘the Big 5’ was originally created by game hunters to represent the most difficult game to hunt but thankfully when you go on a safari these days the only item you will be pointing at the magnificent animals is a camera.
The third coin in the series features the Rhino. These mammals have been around for millions of years and do have a prehistoric look about them. They are easily recognisable by the horns on the forehead. The largest land mammals after the elephant, rhinos can be very bold and have been seen grazing right next to lions. Rhinos rank among the most endangered species on Earth. Valued for their horns they face a dire threat from poaching which means their numbers are decreasing rapidly and they face a serious threat of extinction.
