When most people think of the African continent, images of some of the world’s most majestic creatures are conjured up. Thoughts of wildlife safaris, mingling with lions, gazelles, and enormous African elephants come to the minds of many individuals when thinking of Africa. The Bavarian Central Mint pays homage to the world’s largest land mammal on the 2015 1 oz Somalia Gold Elephant coin. Featuring .999 pure gold, this coin is a great investment option for collectors around the world.
The 2015 1 oz Somalia Gold Elephant has just completed its initial minting and is ready for shipment today. The coin is issued by Somalia, produced in Germany, and is the latest coin in a series of bullion products that showcase wildlife in Africa. The first coins were released in 2004. The Somalia Elephants featured on the coin are indicative of the majestic, yet endangered, beasts that roam the open landscape of Africa.
One side of the coin features two elephants walking through the tall grass of the African wilderness. Birds are seen flying overhead, with tall trees featured in the background. The opposite side of the coin features the heraldic symbol of the Somalia Republic.
The reverse side of the coin bears the aforementioned image of the Somalia Elephants. Engraved above their heads is the phrase “African Wildlife,” while “Elephant” and the weight, purity, and metal are engraved below the image. On the obverse side, the heraldic symbol of the Somalia Republic is featured. In the image, two wild cats grasp a shield with a single star in the center. The cats rest on two crossing arrows with olive branches. “Somali Republic” is engraved above the image, while the face value is engraved below and the year of minting engraved on either side of the image.
