On the reverse side of 2019 1 oz Silver Somalia Elephant Coins is the image of an African elephant. The largest and heaviest land mammal in the world, the African elephant is considered endangered due to aggressive poachers hunting the animals illegally for the ivory in their tusks. This design captures the moment an adult elephant reaches out to the top of a tall tree with its trunk to grab some foliage. The tall prairie grass in the foreground gives way to a winding river and the sparsely dotted savannas in the background.
The obverse face of 2019 Silver Somalia Elephant Coins features the coat of arms for Somalia. Known officially as the Somali Republic, the crowned shield includes a field of horizontal lines with a single star in the center. There are leopards on either side to support the shield, with crossed spears and fern leaves below the shield.
The Bavarian State Mint issues the African Wildlife Somalia Elephant coins each year. Located in Munich, the Bavarian State Mint is one of the oldest mints in Germany and is owned by the state government of the Free State of Bavaria.
