The South African Mint introduced the ‘South African Inventions’ theme in 2016. In 2020, another South African innovation stands out on their newest commemorative coin: the Retinal Cryoprobe, invented by Dr Selig Percy Amoils in 1965.
With its new “Big Five” series, the South African Mint celebrates Africa’s unique natural heritage. The strength and beauty of the lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo are embodied on fine-silver coins. The coins are scheduled to launch biannually.
