2022 1/1000 oz Republic of Gabonaise Elephant Gold Note (New w/ CoA)
The African forest elephant, facing decline elsewhere, has benefited from determined protection in Gabon: the Republic hosts over two-thirds of the extant members of this pachyderm species. It appears alongside a traditional ceremonial mask that represented the quest for harmony in pre-colonial Gabon, and now represents the nation’s search for a balanced future.

The 2022 Gabonese Republic Elephant Gold Note showcases 24-carat gold enhanced by the luster of a proof-like finish. The note ships with a Certificate of Authenticity in a currency sleeve.
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.
