All 2017 ¼ oz Gold Somalian Elephant coins available here today are BU specimens. Coins with a Brilliant Uncirculated grade exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.

On the reverse of all 2017 Gold Somalian Elephant coins you’ll find the same image used since 2004 when the series debuted, the coat of arms for Somalia. It features a single star, like the national flag, but set on the heraldic shield with a background of horizontal lines. The nation of issue, year of issue, and face value of the coin are engraved on this side.

The obverse of the 2017 ¼ oz Gold Somalian Elephant coin has the latest elephant image in the series. The world’s largest land mammal, this image depicts a bush elephant as it stands amidst the grasses of the Savannah. In the background you’ll see one small hut with a palm tree rising above it, and the sun (moon) rising near the edge of the design field.

These 2017 ¼ oz Gold Somalian Elephant coins are one of two first-ever fractional-weight release for the year. Along with the ½ oz coin, these are newcomers to the Gold Somalian Elephant lineup. The larger series now features gold, silver, and platinum coins in both bullion and proof versions.

Gold Somalian Elephant coins are sought after in anticipation for gold’s continued historic value, which you can monitor minute by minute via our active charts that show current gold prices.

The Bavarian State Mint strikes all Somalian Elephant coins. The state-owned entity of the Free State of Bavaria strikes numerous commemorative coins, as well as Euros for use in the German economy and wider Eurozone.
