The Somalian Elephant Series was actually introduced by the Bavarian State Mint in 1999 as a silver coin collection issued for Rwanda. The coins were struck with a new design on the obverse each year for Rwanda through the 2003 release. Beginning in 2004, the coins were renamed Somalian Elephant Series, though still considered the African Wildlife Series overall.

Since changing over to Somalia as the nation of issue, the coin series has steadily made gains among precious metal investors and collectors. The series has branched out to include silver and gold coins in both bullion and proof versions. The silver collection recently expanded immensely to feature fractional-weights, more fractional-weights and larger-weight coins were added to the gold series, and in 2016 the first-ever Platinum Elephant was introduced.

On the obverse of all 2017 Platinum Somalian Elephant coins you’ll find the latest design in the series. It depicts a massive elephant standing in front of a thatched-roof hut on the African plains, with the sun rising overhead in the background.

The reverse of all Somalian Elephant Coins includes the coat of arms for Somalia. The coin’s year of issue, face value, and nation of issue are all engraved on this side of the coin. Somalia’s coat of arms features a single star against a shield with horizontal stripes on the background.

Included in this 2017 Platinum Somalian Elephant Set you’ll find a total of four 2017-issue platinum coins. Each coin contains .9995 fine platinum, and featured weights include a 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz coin.
