African Wildlife Series coins first launched in 1999 with the image of an African elephant on the obverse face. Since that time, the series has featured only the elephant, but used a new design every year. While mintage was originally limited in the series, it is now struck on a much greater scale than the initial 5,000 annual mintage in the early years.
Today, the Silver Somalian Elephant is one of the most sought-after coins in the world. With a new design every year, and coin’s available in both silver and gold, with proof and bullion finishes, it makes the perfect addition to any collection or portfolio.
All 2016 1 Kilo Silver Somalian Elephant Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Silver coins in this condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks as a result of the production process.
On the obverse of the 2016 1 Kilo Silver Somalian Elephant Coin is the latest design in the series, which features a single elephant at the edge of a body of water as it bellows out into the distance. The image of the elephant on this side has a special 24-karat gold gilding finish, combining silver and gold in one bullion coin.
The reverse features the Somali Republic’s coat of arms. It includes the depiction of two leopards holding up a heraldic shield, upon which a single star is set against a backdrop of horizontal lines.
Germany’s Bavarian State Mint is one of its five state-owned mints. Founded near Munich in 1158, the Bavarian State Mint is one of the nation’s oldest and is controlled by the local government of the Free State of Bavaria.
