2017 MARINE PROTECTED AREAS: Prince Edward Islands MPA

Order Here

The South African government has established a network of marine protected areas (MPAs) to conserve South Africa’s offshore biodiversity and ensure the sustainable use of its marine resources.

In 2013, this four-coin sterling-silver series featured the iSimangaliso MPA in the Delagoa bioregion, followed by the KwaZulu-Natal MPAs in 2014. In 2015, the MPAs in the Agulhas bioregion were denoted and in 2016 aspects of the south-western Cape bioregion were portrayed. This theme concludes in 2017 with South Africa’s first offshore MPA namely the Prince Edward Islands MPA consisting of Prince Edward and Marion Islands located in the southern Indian Ocean, halfway between South Africa and Antarctica.

R1 (1/10oz, 24ct gold)

Order Here

The theme ‘South African Reptiles’ began in 2015 on the R1 (1/10 oz) pure gold coin featuring the Nile crocodile, followed by the Cape dwarf chameleon in 2016. The puff adder (Bitis arietans) is featured on the 2017 coin and represents the snakes within this series.

The puff adder is the most common and widespread snake on the African continent. Its colour pattern varies geographically, ranging from yellow through to red-brown, overlaid with a pattern of dark brown to black chevron or u-shaped bands. This colouration and pattern serves as camouflage for both hunting and defence purposes. The snake rarely hunts actively but is known for being extremely aggressive when disturbed; its name is resultant of the snake’s habit of inflating itself and loudly hissing as a warning when disturbed.

After striking its prey, with arguably the fastest strike of 0,25 of a second, it releases its prey as venom is injected and later track the prey through smell.

Reverse:

On the R1 coin the puff adder is shown sniffing the air with its tongue. The denomination of ‘R1’ and the metal value of ‘1/10 oz Au 999.9’, together with its name, is shown.

Obverse:

The South African coat of arms and the year 2017 is presented on the obverse.
