Originally coined by game hunters, the term “Big 5” refers to the top five most difficult African animals to hunt on foot: the African lion, leopard, black rhinoceros, African bush elephant, and the African buffalo. Each of these Big 5 animals can be characterized as “Charismatic megafauna”, which are large animal species with symbolic value or widespread popular appeal. Charismatic megafauna is often used by environmental activists to gain public support for environmentalist goals, such as the preservation of habitats and the conservation of various animal species. Honor these incredible animals by purchasing the 2022 5oz Silver Big Five Shaped High Relief Coin!
