There are few ways to make an already popular coin more in demand, but colorization brings the brilliant designs on bullion coins to life in a way that mint striking never could. The Bavarian State Mint added unique and vibrant colors to the obverse design of two 2016 1 oz Silver Somalian Elephant coins to create distinctive daytime and nighttime scenes.
On the obverse side of the day coin, the background is lit up by a vibrant, yellow sun high up in a sky that is accented with light shades of blue and thin, white clouds in the background. The male bull elephant in the foreground is standing amongst the tall, green grass as the waters of the nearby body of water are jostled by a breeze.
The obverse side of the night coin transforms the scenery completely, with the yellow sun replaced by a bright, white moon. The sky is a dark shade of blue, with larger, puffy clouds passing through. Another significant difference is the now calm, blue waters of the lake, upon which you can see the reflection of the moon’s white light.
The coat of arms for the Somali Republic is still featured on the reverse, with no colorization added or alterations to any of the engravings.
Bavarian State Mint is one of five sovereign German mints, and one of a handful in Europe authorized to produce the common currency of the Eurozone, the Euro (€).
