The African Wildlife Series Elephant coins were introduced in 1999 by the Bavarian State Mint for the nation of Zambia. This continued through 2003, with the nation of Somalia taking over that status starting in 2004. The coins always feature a new image of the African bush elephant species on the reverse and the series has never used a duplicate design.
On the reverse of 2020 1/50 oz Gold Somalia Elephant Coins, you will find two adult elephants. All African bush elephants, male and female, have tusks that begin to grow between the ages of one and three. This continues throughout their life, with longer tusks offering the first visual clue to the age of an African bush elephant. The elephant on the left in this design is clearly a mature adult as its tusks are as long as its trunk. The other elephant is also an adult, but its tusks are not nearly as long as the other. Mount Kilimanjaro is visible in the background between the two massive beasts.
The obverse of 2020 Gold Somalia Elephant Coins bears the coat of arms for Somalia. The crest offers a crowned shield in the center of the field. The shield has a background field of horizontal lines with a single star in the center. A leopard supports the shield on either side, while two spears and fern leaves cross below the design and are draped in a ribbon cloth.
