One of the most remarkable collectibles to be released by an African country in 2022, this gorgeous proof-like gold note from the Gabonese Republic is a celebration of conservation efforts and the path toward a green future as well as a rich celebration of iconic local imagery. The 1/1000 oz Gold 2022 Republic of Gabonaise Elephant Note is available for online purchase from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Gabonese Republic Elephant Gold Note showcases 24-carat gold enhanced by the luster of a proof-like finish. Shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity in a currency sleeve, it comes fully insured against any mishap in transit by the Provident Metals team.
The note’s obverse side features a mountainous rainforest landscape, the kind of locale where Gabon’s African forest elephant herds thrive. This is accompanied by the Republic’s coat of arms and by inscriptions that verify the issuing country and bank, its gold contents, and its face value.
The reverse side of the note features a ceremonial mask alongside an image of an African forest elephant, joined by further inscriptions that confirm its face value and gold contents, the issuing country and the backing of the Bank of Central African States, and its gold content.
The Green Gabon development policy is dedicated to charting a path forward for the African country that balances the needs of its farmers harmoniously with the needs of the wilderness, and of wild species such as the iconic African forest elephant. That quest for harmony is parallel to the ritual role of ancient pre-colonial secret societies in Gabon, who acted as both judicial and spiritual authorities, purifying themselves in rituals using the kind of mask featured alongside the elephant on this note. These “Fang” secret societies rooted out disruptive sorcerers to establish peace in their communities, and in the modern context, these masks represent that quest for harmony in the Republic’s environmental and developmental frameworks.
