The prestige set is comprised of all four silver coins of the 2015 Marine Protected Areas coin series.
South Africa’s holistic approach to conservation includes a network of marine protected areas (MPAs) to conserve the country’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 are represented. The four coins symbolise South Africa’s extraordinary coastal ecosystems with their unique and varied habitat, fauna and flora.
