South Africa Natura Oryx Gold Proof 1 Troy oz
Starting in 1994 the South African Mint produces a series of "Natura" proof coins. Each year a theme is chosen, and each of the four coins (1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 oz) has a different design. The Natura series are struck .9999 fine gold, South Africa's first fine gold coins.
This 2001 minted 1 Troy oz coin is from the last of the "Monarchs of Africa" series- the Oryx (Gemsbok) - Prince of the Kalahari. The head of the Oryx appears on the obverse drinking water.
Coin comes in a presentation box, is sealed in an acrylic holder and with certificate of authenticity. Total mintage of the 1 oz Oryx was 3,595.
Coin has 2 small red/orange spots on the obverse (visible in the photo), this was unfortunately quite common with pure gold coins (google "gold coin orange spots" to see). I have talked with one of the leading dealers of these coins in the US and he says it does not affect the value.
