Silver Somalian Elephant coins, like a few other bullion issues, have a new design on the obverse each year. The design motif remains focused annually on the African elephant, but the specific designs change with each new release. The Silver Elephant collection has expanded significantly, with fractional-weight silver coins now available along with more fractional and larger-weight gold coins.
These 2017 Colorized Silver Somalian Elephant Coins have a beautiful addition of colorized layers on the obverse face. This addition adds collectible value and enhanced visual beauty to an already popular coin.
On the obverse of the 2017 Colorized Silver Somalian Elephant Coin you’ll find the image of a lone elephant standing on the savannas of Africa, with a nearby hut and palm tree in the middle ground of the coin’s design. This entire landscape has been colorized to bring the coin to life.
The reverse of the Silver Elephant coin includes the coat of arms for Somalia. Though the nation of Somalia seems split on whether or not official approval was granted for these coins, the Bavarian State Mint has an incredibly popular product available in this series of silver coins.
The Bavarian State Mint is a state-owned entity of the Free State of Bavaria, and operates in tandem with the official sovereign mint complex of Germany. Emporium Hamburg, a third-party authorized coin dealer in Hamburg, Germany, adds colorization to these coins.
