Shop Exclusive 2019 Elephants with Lunar Pig Privy Now Only at APMEX
APMEX, Inc., a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is thrilled to offer new exclusive options in the 2019 Gold and Silver Somalian Elephant series.
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a popular subject for mints around the world and the Bavarian State Mint, known locally as Das Bayerisches Hauptmünzamt, is no exception. They have combined their iconic Elephant Series imagery with the pig, representing the upcoming year.
These North American APMEXclusive® issues combine bullion appeal with collectible interest. Each coin contains .9999 fine Gold or .9999 fine Silver. Only 5,000 Silver coins will be produced while a scant 100 Gold coins are being released.
As the final animal of the 12-year cycle in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the pig is known to be diplomatic and sensitive. As with each sign of the Chinese zodiac, people born under the Year of the Pig are said to display traits associated with the animal, including honesty, loyalty, sincerity and having a calm temperament.
In 1999, the Bavarian State Mint first manufactured Silver and Gold Elephant coins in the African Wildlife series under the legend of Zambia. In 2004, the country of issue changed to the Somali Republic, a coastal nation on the Horn of Africa. Despite this slight change, the popularity of the series never diminished, valued for its unique designs and high metal content.
Gold and Silver Elephant coins depict the Somali Coat of Arms, showing two leopards supporting a shield with a five-pointed star with a ribbon draped over two crossed lances and two crossed palm fronds below. As with many popular world coin series, the reverse design changes each year. The 2019 coins feature an adult elephant reaching its trunk toward a tree. A small pig privy mark is on the left of the coin, near the back of the elephant.
These exclusive Gold and Silver coins are now available from APMEX. Shop for 2019 Somalian Elephants with Pig Privy today while products are still in stock.
