A Stunning Coin Celebrates a Numismatic Celebration

In 2004, the Somali Elephant burst onto the coin scene, offering collectors a stunning new option in addition to the more traditional bullion issues. The coin features one of the continent’s most popular animals, one that is a top attraction on safaris and at zoos throughout the world. Every year, the series features a new design, drawing particular interest among collectors who love animal-themed coins, as well as those looking to diversify from the more traditional options, such as Silver Eagles and Maple Leafs. This coin part of a limited issue that celebrates the World Money Fair with a privy mark of the Brandenburg Gate, one of the host city’s, i.e. Berlin’s, most famous landmarks.

  • FEATURING A ONE-YEAR ONLY DESIGN – This 2018 Silver Elephant with World Money Fair privy features the same design as its bullion counterpart. It shows an African Elephant at a slight angle with a couple of birds flying in the background. The design is limited to just one year and will never appear on a coin again!

 

  • PHENOMENAL PROOFLIKE FINISH – Each coin was struck on a one ounce planchet of 99.99% fine silver.  The coin has a prooflike finish, which means that its fields are reflective. This makes the privy issue all the more collectable.

 

  • SOMALIA LEGAL TENDER -- Each 2018 Silver African Elephant with WMF Proof is 100 shillings legal tender in Somalia. Somalia is an East African nation that is part of the Horn of Africa. It has a long history as a center of commerce and trade and has a musical tradition that is largely based on the country’s folklore.

 

  • CERTIFIED VIRTUALLY FLAWLESS – Your coin will be graded Mint State-69 (MS69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections -- well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. NGC also certified that this piece was among the First Releases.

 

  • A LIMITED MINTAGE – Only 1,000 pieces that bear the WMF privy were issued.

For avid collectors, the World Money Fair is an important event that offers mints, suppliers, and others in the numismatic community the opportunity to come together and share their favorite hobby. Because of its importance, many mints issue special coins, either with unique designs or with privy marks, as is the case with this one, to mark the occasion. These coins tend to be highly sought by collectors not only because of their stunning designs but also because of their exclusivity. This 2018 Somalia Elephant with WMF privy is no exception, so place your order at GovMint.com before, like the Fair itself, this coin is history!
