African bush elephants are one of three living species of elephant, and one of two living on the African continent. In total, the living species of elephants are the African bush elephant, African forest elephant, and the Asian elephant. The African bush elephant is the largest of the three species and is the largest living land mammal today.
The obverse design of the 2020 Silver Somalia Elephants includes a depiction of the coat of arms for Somalia. This design includes two leopards supporting the shield in the coat of arms for the Somali Republic. The shield itself consists of a crowned seal with a single star set against a backdrop of horizontal lines. Fern leaves and spears cross below with a banner draped across the two items.
On the obverse face of 2020 1/10 oz Silver Somalia Elephants is an image of two bush elephants in side-profile relief. The creatures are shown standing at the center of the design field facing inward toward one another. Only the neck and heads are visible. The elephants are both mature adults with long ivory tusks, but the elephant on the left is clearly the elder of the two as its tusks are much longer.
