Coin Story

You never have seen a coin like this before. A gold plated silver Springbok in original proportion, is standing on a silver coin. In real life it is a medium-sized brown and white antelope-gazelle of southwestern Africa. It is extremely fast and can reach speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph) and can leap 4 m (13 feet) through the air. The common name "springbok" comes from the Afrikaans and Dutch words spring = jump and bok = male antelope or goat. It is also a symbol for African coinage first to be minted on the famous Kruger Rand. This is the world’s first 3 oz silver full dimensional minting coin. In addition to the fact that it is the first 3 oz version minted in this technique, the coin has the highest relief ever minted (37mm). The Springbok and the ground are finished with .999 gold. This application reinforces the details. As you can see on the pictures the producer tried to finish the parts of the coin in a perfect way. After the finishing process the parts are polished by hand.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures an astonishing design of the famous African Springbok. It is a fully dimensional replica of the animal. The Springbok is completely gold plated and hand polished. It is very detailed and a true piece of art. The Springbok is placed in its original habitat, making it look even more alive.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Gabon "Coat of Arms" and the denomination "2000 Francs" of the coin.
