A coastal country on the western edge of the Indian Ocean, the United Republic of Tanzania has access to three of the largest lakes in the world: Lakes Victoria, Nyasa, and Tanganyika. Fishing has traditionally been an important feature of the nation’s economy and traditions, with certain species of fish being particularly prominent. One of those, featured on the Aurum gold note, is the catfish, traditionally caught from a traditional Dhow-style fishing boat.
For those looking to invest in small amounts of gold bullion, the 2021 Aurum Tanzania Gold Note is an ideal choice. Produced with a cutting-edge pressing process and showcasing beautifully intricate designs, it ships inside an individual currency sleeve with a Certificate of Authenticity from the manufacturer.
The note’s obverse side depicts the Syodontis multipunctatus, a small catfish from Lake Tanganyika. It appears in right-profile relief along with notations of the note’s face value and its year and country of issue.
The reverse side shows a traditional fishing boat, the kind of long and thin-hulled Dhow that can still be seen on the waters of Tanzania’s lakes today. It appears in just such a setting with its sails up and an anchor in the water, with an outline of the United Republic of Tanzania on the right of the design field.
