CoinGold Five Ounces 2020 African Wildlife - Elephant

The Somali Shilling is the official currency of Somalia. Due to inflation though, regular cash circulation in the country is handled not by coins but mostly by banknotes and foreign currency.

The country has also authorised the Bavarian Central Mint to issue bullion coins under its jurisdiction. The African Wildlife Series features a new design every year and has become very popular with collectors and bullion investors worldwide. The coins are in standard bullion sizes, including a large five ounces of gold format - designated as 5 oz Au, where Au is abbreviated from Aurum, the Latin word for gold.

This coin is part of the African Wildlife bullion coin series by the Bavarian Central Mint, and features the Elephant.
