Silver Somalian Elephant coins were originally produced for the nation of Zambia, but since 2004 have been a coin issued for the nation of Somalia by the Bavarian State Mint of Germany. These coins had very strictly controlled mintages at first and .999 pure silver content.
Beginning with the Great Recession and global drop in economic output in 2008, the Bavarian State Mint loosened the strings on Silver Somalian Elephant production. Numbers have soared in recent years, but production of these coins is still well below the likes of the Silver American Eagle coins.
Additionally, the popularity of these 2017 1 Kilo Silver Somalian Elephants and other options in the series are powered by the ever-changing obverse design field. While the theme is always focused on the African elephant, the specific features change annually.
The obverse of the new 2017 1 Kilo Silver Somalian Elephant Coin features the image of a one male elephant standing on the savanna. The only images visible in the design other than the elephant are the tall, wild grasses of the savanna, a hut in the background, and a pair of palm trees rising toward the horizon.
On the obverse is the customary Somali coat of arms. This includes a heraldic shield with a singular star on it, set against a backdrop of horizontal bars. On either side of the shield are leopards holding the shield upright.
The Bavarian State Mint is one of the most respected facilities in the world today, and is responsible for Silver and Gold Somalian Elephant coin production. Owned by the Free State of Bavaria and headquartered in Munich, it is one of Germany’s four major mint facilities.
