The obverse also contains the coat of arms of South Africa, which confirms the coin’s legal tender status.

Despite being the world’s largest land animal, African elephants are gentle and loving creatures. They’re also incredibly intelligent, with their brains functioning at high levels across multiple areas. Their memory, for instance, is remarkable. For survival purposes, they are able to remember a wide range of routes to different food and water sources. Additionally, they have the ability to recall both fellow elephants and humans years after their last encounter with them.
