INTRODUCING THE 1oz HUMMINGBIRD, A SINGLE MINE ORIGIN GOLD COIN
2018 will bring the arrival of the “1oz Hummingbird” – a Single Mine Origin (‘SMO’) pure gold coin, originating from the Yanfolila Gold Mine in Mali.
The 1oz Hummingbird will be part of a collection of seven coins to be launched officially in 2018, offering the rare opportunity to own an item of SMO gold. In line with equator principles, each coin will seek to exemplify Hummingbird’s commitment to quality and best practice; for every ounce of gold Hummingbird produces from the Yanfolila Gold Mine we will be investing in our community-based projects across West Africa.
