Gold Somalian Elephant coins, along with their silver and platinum counterparts, have a new design on the obverse each year. The elephant is the world’s largest land mammal, and though it has no natural predators once it reaches its full size during adulthood, the creatures are endangered because of mankind.

The massive tusks that add to the beauty of these creatures also make them a target of greedy humans. The ivory trade, now illegal throughout most of the world, saw thousands of these creatures needlessly slaughtered for their tusks. Conservation efforts and increased global awareness are helping save the African elephant.

On the obverse of the 2017 ½ Gram Gold Somalian Elephant Coin you’ll find the latest design from the Bavarian State Mint. It depicts an elephant standing amidst the grasses of the savannah, with a small hut and palm tree located in the background. Engravings include “African Wildlife,” “Elephant,” and “0.5 G Au 9999.”

The reverse of the Gold Somalian Elephant bears the coat of arms for Somalia. The image is surrounded by engravings of “Somali Republic,” “2017” split on either side of the national crest, and the face value of “20 Shillings.”

All 2017 ½ Gram Gold Somalian Elephant Coin available here today is a BU coin. Products in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear on the surfaces, but may feature minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.
