From the limited mintage "Shapes of Africa" Collection
From the ancient African land of Djibouti comes this ground-breaking oversized silver coin saluting the largest land animal on earth, the African bush elephant. Weighing up to 23,000 pounds, elephants have unique characteristics. Their trunks alone contain 40,000 muscles and tendons!
No wonder this marvel of nature has been chosen to grace another marvel -- a new coin which features two remarkable images of the African elephant. First, this mammoth creature is shown in mint-preferred high relief, as it seems to charge on to the coin from its edge. But there’s more. The second representation of the great beast breaks all the rules. An innovative “Flawless Cut-Out” minting technique is used to precisely profile the elephant on the coin – the image is literally cut out of the coin! Reverse-Proof struck in a massive 50 mm diameter from one ounce of .999 pure silver, you get intrinsic value, eye appeal and technical advances all in one spectacular piece.
Comes beautifully packaged with Certificate of Authenticity. Only 7,500 will be minted, so order yours today!
