Somalia has issued a set of six gold-plated coins of mythical creatures. The multi-coloured rectangular coins feature a dragon, a centaur, fairy, mermaid, unicorn, and phoenix.

The coins released by the Republic of Somalia in 2013 are in the denomination of 25 Shillings each. The coins are the latest collection in the kitty of noted numismatist D. Satyabuddu.

The 45 mm x 26 mm coins come in individual capsules.

“Some countries are earning precious foreign exchange by issuing coins on various features and putting them up for sale,” says Mr. Satyabuddu.
