With new designs each year and a wide range of weights available, the Somalia Elephant Gold Series is one of the most popular with investors. The gold bullion coins in this series come in 1 oz gold and several fractional-ounce weights that include some of the smallest and most unique weights of any gold collection.
Few of the gold bullion coin series available today have the diversity of options that the Somalia Elephant Gold collection offers. The 1 oz gold coin is the longest-running coin in the series, but it is no longer the only option for buyers. The series now has unique weights such as the 1/2 Gram and 1/50 Troy oz coin that other gold collections do not offer, as well as a 1/25 Troy oz gold coin. The Somalia Elephant Gold Coin is also available in traditional 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/2 Troy oz options.
In the obverse design of the 2021 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Gold Coin, you will find the Somali coat of arms. The coat of arms for the Somali Republic features a crowned shield that has horizontal lines in the background field and a single star in the center. The shield is supported on each side by a leopard with crossed spears and fern leaves below. The coins have a beaded border and inscriptions of Somali Republic, 2021, and 1000 Shillings.
For the reverse design of the 2021 Somalia Elephant Gold Coins, the Bavarian State Mint features another new design. The image of the African bush elephant showcases the dominant size of the creatures. The elephant is in the immediate foreground with its trunk extending into the border element, its ears flapped wide open, and its tusks pointing out toward the viewer. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read African Wildlife, Elephant, and 1 oz Au 999.9.
The Somalia Elephant Series actually started out as the Zambia Elephant Series. From 1999 to 2003, the series was issued for Zambia with fresh designs on the reverse each year. In 2004, the collection became the Somalia Elephant Series and has expanded significantly in the years since to include increased purity of both the silver and gold coins, more weights in both metals, and even a platinum bullion coin.
Your 2021 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Gold Coin comes with an individual protective plastic capsule and is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
