The .999 fine silver Somalia Silver Elephant coin is rich in history and design; it is struck in Germany by the Bavarian State Mint for the Government of Somalia.

General Details

Another installment of the African Wildlife Series has investors primed to pounce all over again. This year, 2021, marks the 18th iteration of the Silver Somalia African Elephant, a design proven to be consistently pursued and admired by knowledgeable collectors of all stripes.

First introduced in 2004, the Somalia Elephant coin boasts an annually changing motif, and this fine edition is no exception.

Design of the Silver Somalia African Elephant coin

This year marks the 18th design in the series. The coin’s annual transformation provides yet another good reason why these items never fail to pique the attention of the market.

The obverse side of the coin shows the Somalian Coat of Arms, marked by a pair of leopards and a five-point star on the shield. Palm fronds situate the shield from below and above reads the inscription Somali Republic. The year of issuance is also displayed with the first two digits appearing to the left on the coat of arms and the second two digits appearing on the right side. At the bottom of the coat of arms is the legal tender face value the Somali Silver Elephant, 100 shillings. The detail and craftsmanship here are extremely impressive. The reverse features two majestic adult elephants with large tusks facing each. Behind them is the Somali landmark of Mount Kilimanjaro rising above the savanna desert in the background.

The Silver Somalia African Elephant coin weighs one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver.

History of the Series

The Silver Monkey was the first silver coin issued in the series. That proved popular enough, to be sure, with a notably successful run from 1998–2004. The Zambia elephant was up next, from 1999 until 2003 — no slouch there. Next on deck was our inimitable friend the Silver Somalia Elephant, introduced in 2004 and currently on a seemingly unstoppable run that’s now reached fifteen iterations and every corner of the numismatic consciousness.

As always, Midas Gold Group is more than happy to advise prospective buyers on whether the Silver Somalia African Elephant is right for your collection. Any coin bought from us will always come to you in immaculate condition straight from the mint itself.
