Somalia Elephant coins are popular with both investors and collectors, due in no small part to two big factors. The recent bump from .999 fineness in both silver and gold to .9999 fineness made it an even more attractive piece for investors, while the constantly changing obverse designs make them a great collectors piece as well.
As always, the 2017 1/10 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coin features a brand-new design. On the obverse of each coin youll find the image of a large bull elephant, with its trunk raised in the air as it lets out a deep bellow. In the background is a traditional hut used by African tribes for shelter for thousands of years. Another key element in the design of these coins lately has been the presence of the moon (or sun) in the design, which again features in the 2017 design.
The reverse side of each 2017 Somalia Gold Elephant includes the coat of arms for Somalia in the center, with engravings that include the nation of issue, year of issue, and the coins face value in Somali Shillings.
All Somalia Gold Elephant coins pay tribute to the African elephant, which is the worlds largest land mammal. The species actually consists of two major subspecies, the bush elephant and forest elephant. The bush elephant subspecies is the most commonly depicted, and is the creature which holds the title of largest land mammal. Forest elephants are no slouches though, tipping the scales as the third largest land mammal in the world.
Each 2017 1/10 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coin in this listing has a BU grade. Coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks.
