The Somalian Elephant coin series debuted in 1999 as the Zambian Elephant, but shifted to Somalia starting in 2004. Since its introduction, these coins have been highly coveted by collectors because the design on the obverse of the African Elephant is changed each year. On top of that, the coins originally had extremely limited mintages.

For 2016, the Bavarian State Mint released its first-ever Platinum Somalian Elephant coin. These coins are now available in a brilliant premium proof coin set. This 2016 Platinum Somalian Elephant Premium Proof Coin Set includes four coins in total; a 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz coin.

The coins in this set all feature .9995 fine platinum, and have varying face values based upon the weight of the coins. The face values range from 100 Shillings for the 1/10 oz coin, 200 Shillings for the 1/4 oz coin, to 500 Shillings and 1,000 Shillings for the 1/2 oz and 1 oz coins respectively.

On the reverse of each Platinum Somalian Elephant is the image of the coat of arms for Somalia. It features a singular star against a background of horizontal lines across the heraldic shield. The face value of each coin is engraved on this face along with a year of issue mark.

The obverse of the 2016 Platinum Somalian Elephant Proof Coins in this set feature the 2016 design of the African Wildlife Elephant coins. It depicts a large bull elephant standing at the edge of a river, with its trunk raised and a bellow going out into the distance.

All Somalian Elephant coins are struck originally by the Bavarian State Mint, which is a state-owned entity of the Free State of Bavaria in Munich, Germany. This premium proof coin set is a product of Emporium Hamburg, a private coin dealer in Germany.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
