Animals of Africa - Elephant silver coin (2021 MTB/PAMP)
The third coin in PAMP/MTB’s ‘Animals of Africa’ shaped silver coins is now available. Following the Nile Crocodile and the African Lion, the African Elephant is formed in an ounce of 0.9999 silver, and reaches out to a decent 42 mm in size. It’s actually an impressive coin, showing clear advances, especially the very small border, over earlier series, like the bird coins.
Issued for the Solomon Islands, and with a reverse-proof finish, there’s a mintage cap of 2,500 pieces. The coin seems well presented, as we’ve seen this box style in hand for a few earlier releases, and come away pleased with it. These types of coins are an acquired taste, admittedly, but this seems to be a well done example, trading high-relief for affordability, and that’s fine. Available to order now.
