The springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) is a medium-sized antelope that inhabits the dry areas of south and southwestern Africa. The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) classifies the springbok as a Least Concern species. There are no major threats to the long-term survival of the species; the Springbok, in fact, is one of the few antelope species considered to have an expanding population. They are popular game animals, and are valued for their meat and skin. The springbok is the national animal of South Africa.
With the worldwide mintage limited to only 999 pieces worldwide, each coin is delivered in a beautiful wooden presentation case. This high quality coin with four exquisite designs is sure to delight even the most demanding coin collectors.
