The History of the 1 oz Gold Elephant Coin

Issued by Somalia, the 2018 1 oz Gold African Elephant coins are produced in Munich, Germany by Das Bayerisches Hauptmünzamt, or the Bavarian State Mint. The Gold African Elephant bullion coin is just one of many Precious Metal coins struck by the mint during its long and illustrious history, which dates back to the 12th century. These stunning Somalia Gold Elephants are part of the African Wildlife series of coins initially launched into the Silver market by Zambia in 1999. Gold coins were not part of the series until Somalia took over issuing the series in 2004.

Exceptional Fineness Makes an Exceptional Investment

The 2018 Somalia Gold African Elephant is part of the Somalian African Wildlife Series, an intriguing series that sparks the interest of both investors and collectors. The Gold Elephant coin is a government-guaranteed sovereign coin of Somalia, produced by a renowned state-owned mint in Bavaria. Each coin contains an exceptional .9999 fine Gold, making them a perfect choice for investors who want to watch their money grow over the long term. However, these 1 oz Gold coins are also sumptuously detailed and feature new artwork annually, enhancing their value for collectors. Gold African Elephant coins from Somalia may be the ideal choice for your investment or collection.

Gold Coins May Provide a Safe Haven

Gold, like in these beautiful Somalia Gold coins, has maintained its status as a Precious Metal of great intrinsic value for millennia. Many investors include Gold coins in their portfolios to provide stability in case the U.S. dollar weakens, as it did between 1998 and 2008. During that time, the price of Gold rose from below $300 per ounce and to approximately $1,000 per ounce. Since then, the Gold spot price peaked near $1,900 per ounce in 2011 and moved lower as the U.S. dollar gained strength. Holding Gold investment is a good hedge against economic uncertainty.

Understanding the Brilliant Uncirculated Designation

When collecting Somalia Gold coins, or indeed any Gold coins, the condition of the coin is extremely important if you mean to possess a coin not only for its raw Gold value, but also for its numismatic, or collector, value. A 2018 Somalia 1 oz Gold African Elephant that is designated Brilliant Uncirculated is a coin that has never been in circulation and retains its original mint luster and finish. Brilliant Uncirculated Somalia Gold Elephants and other BU coins are also described as MS, or Mint State, and can be graded from MS-60 to MS-70 by a respected coin grading service such as PCGS or NGC, two of the top services.
