1 oz Somalia Elephant Gold Coin | 2023
StoneX Bullion is really pleased to present the 1 oz Somalia elephant coin gold 2023 which offers a new design every year.
The Bavarian State Mint, one of the 5 German mints, along with Berlin, Hamburg, Karlsruhe and Stuttgart is behind this beautiful coin. Currently 21% of the new coins in circulation in Germany are minted here. The State Mint has issued the African Wildlife series since 1999 and started with the Zambian Elephants. In 2004, the Zambia Elephant was rebranded as the Somalia Elephant.
The reverse like every year features a new design of an Elephant. There are three recognized living species of elephants: the African forest elephant, the African bush elephant (featured in this coin) and the Asian elephant. Here the majestic elephant is represented feeding from a tree branch under the sunlight in its natural environment. The elephant is using its trunk to pull down a branch overhead. The African savannah in the background looks tranquil and beautiful with the moon on the left hand corner. This is a truly beautiful and remarkable design with amazing attention to details on the elephant’s head. The inscriptions on the reverse are "AFRICAN WILDLIFE", "ELEPHANT" and "1 oz Au 999.9"
The obverse of this great 1 oz Somalia elephant gold coin features the Somali coat of arms. This design includes a shield with a crowned top, horizontal lines in the background, and a single star in the centre. Leopards flank the shield from either side with leaves beneath the design. The coin includes inscriptions that read SOMALI REPUBLIC, 2023, and 1000 Shillings.
The Bavarian State mint is globally recognized for its excellence in quality. The African Wildlife Elephant series is well-established and highly popular worldwide. As the coins meet a high demand among collectors and investors, the mintage caps which once existed have disappeared. Secure your copy today on StoneX Bullion!
