Customer Reviews

These affordable world coins were struck in 50% silver over 60 years ago when the then-Union of South Africa was part of the Commonwealth of Nations. The 5 Shilling features King George VI on the obverse and a Springbok antelope, the national symbol of South Africa chosen for its resiliency, on the reverse. The sixpence profiles a youthful Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the national flower, the showy Protea plant known for its adaptability on the reverse. These wonderfully detailed silver coins make a great addition to a world, nature or animal collection!
