Somalia Gold Elephant Coins have a wide range of options for those looking to invest in gold. While the series initially offered only a 1 oz coin, the Bavarian State Mint made major changes to the collection in 2016 that included a boost to .9999 pure gold content and the introduction of numerous new coin weights. The program now includes a total of six fractional-weight coins, including the diminutive 1/50 Troy oz and 1/2 Gram coins.
All 2020 1/50 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coins are available for individual purchase inside of protective plastic capsules or in bulk orders containing 20 coins per tube. Each of the coins available to you comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the mint. The 1/50 oz coin is the second smallest in the series at .02 Troy oz total weight, which makes it modestly larger than the 1/2 Gram coin’s .016 Troy oz weight.
The obverse of 2020 1/50 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coins features two adult African bush elephants. The creatures are depicted in side-profile relief with the monumental peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background field. The elephant on the left has long ivory tusks that surpass its trunk, while the elephant on the right also has long tusks, but those tusks are not quite as long as the other elephants.
African bush elephants are one of three remaining species of elephants alive today. Two of those species are found on the African continent, with the African bush elephant the largest and heaviest terrestrial mammal in the world and the African forest elephant the third largest. The Asian elephant is the other remaining species in the world and is considered the second-largest land mammal.
On the reverse of 2020 Somalia Gold Elephant Coins, you will find a vision of the Somalia coat of arms. This design features a crowned shield with a single star on a background field of horizontal lines.
