African bush elephants have one of the widest habitat ranges of any animal on the African continent. The bush elephant is the largest and heaviest land mammal alive today and it can be found living in 37 different nations across Africa. Most African bush elephants live in family social groups with herds consisting of males, females, and young cows. Massive male bulls will often live alone or in small bachelor groups.

On the obverse of 2020 Gold Somalia Elephant Coins, you will find the coat of arms for Somalia. This iconic design includes the crowned shield with a single star in the middle backed by horizontal lines. The use of a single star is inspired by the national flag which offers a single white star on a blue field. The shield is supported on either side by a leopard. Inscriptions on this side include the nation of issue, date mark, and the face value of the coin.
The reverse of 2020 1/2 Gram Gold Somalia Elephant Coins bears the latest African elephant design for the series. Here, two adult elephants are depicted in side-profile relief facing one another. The elephant on the left is clearly the older of the two based on the length of its ivory tusks. In the background field, the continent’s highest peak at Mount Kilimanjaro is featured.
The Bavarian State Mint issues the coins in the Somalia Elephant Series. The Bavarian State Mint is located in Munich, Germany, and is owned by the government of the Free State of Bavaria.
