All 2018 1 oz Silver Somalian Elephant Coins in this product listing are available in BU condition.

Silver Somalian Elephant coins are part of the African Wildlife Series and feature the largest land mammal known to mankind today. Elephants are not apex predators as they persist on a diet of local vegetation, but they are an apex species with no natural predators once they have reached their full adult size.
The obverse of all 2018 1 oz Silver Somalian Elephant Coins includes the newest design available in the series. This image includes a massive elephant standing at the forefront of the design with long tusks and its trunk raised high in the air reaching out toward the edge of the design field.
On the reverse you’ll find the familiar coat of arms for Somalia. Issued on this side in every year since 2004, the coat of arms includes a singular star set against a background of horizontal lines. The shield itself is topped with a crown design and includes leopards on either side holding the shield upright.
Silver Elephant Coins have seen a massive surge in interest in recent years, with changes made to make the program even more attractive. The original .999 silver content has been increased to .9999, and more recent issues of the coins saw the first-ever fractional-weight options added to the silver collection along with greater variety above 1 oz silver weight as well.
The Bavarian State Mint is located in Munich and is a state-owned minting operation. Opened in the 12th century, it is one of Europe’s oldest operating mints.
