Silver Somalia Elephant coins have been issued as such since 2004 when the Bavarian State Mint shifted the program of silver and gold bullion coins from Zambia to Somalia. The series originally debuted in 1999 as the Zambian Elephant. Though this is the 14th new design during its time as the Somalia Elephant, it is actually the 19th overall in the broader series.
Silver Elephant coins are produced annually in silver bullion investment-grade coins as the primary option. As of 2017, the Silver Elephant collection features a number of fractional-weight coins and coins of 2 oz, 5 oz, and other larger weights above 1 Troy oz. Proof coins in this collection are fewer in number and boast mintage caps that add to the collectability of each specimen.
On the obverse side of each of these 2017 Silver Somalia Elephant Proof Coins in this Prestige Set, you will notice the image of a large African bush elephant standing on the savannah with its trunk raised high in the air. In the background, there is a singular palm tree leaning out over a small traditional hut.
The reverse of 2017 Silver Somalia Elephant Proof Coins includes the coat of arms for Somalia. This design includes a shield with horizontal lines and a single star in the center. The crowned shield is flanked on either side by a leopard and features crossed spears and fern leaves below.
