2018 1oz Gold Somalia Elephant coins

The 2018 1oz Gold Somalia Elephant is here. As part of one of the most successful coin collections to date, this new release from the Bavarian State Mint in Munich is sure to sell out quickly. An annually changing design featuring the elephant, an African icon and the world's largest land mammal, plus one troy ounce of .9999 purity gold ensures that these striking coins are always universally popular.

The 1oz 2018 Gold Somalia Elephant - an essential buy

No other coin series has captured the imagination of numismatics quite as much as the African Wildlife Series from the Bavarian State Mint. An unusual pedigree coupled with outstanding purity has made each new coin an instant success. It’s worth noting that, although referred to as a 'series' there has only ever been one subject, the African elephant. The 'series' first came to the attention of investors between 1999 and 2003 when the mint released a coin that's almost identical to today's Somalian Elephant but with Zambia as the state of issue. The coat of arms of Somalia first appeared in 2004 on Silver Elephant coins. Their popularity lead to the introduction of Gold Somalia Elephants in 2008 and these beautifully designed coins have been sought after ever since.

The 1oz 2018 Somalian Gold Elephant is also a great choice for investors. It’s one of just a few bullion coins to be minted from .9999 gold and, of course, 1oz is the most popular size universally. Each coin features a wonderful new reverse design for 2018 – an adult elephant raises his trunk towards the rim of the coin as two native birds take flight in the background. The obverse features the coat of arms of Somalia.

Why choose the 2018 1oz Somalia Gold Elephant

Fans of the African Wildlife series will certainly want to add this beautiful 2018 coin to their collections. It’s also likely to be snapped up by buyers who are aware that gold is one of the safest precious metals for investment and who appreciate the additional appeal of the coin's purity and unique history.

  • 1oz of fine 999.9/1000 gold in each coin
