The Silver Somalia Elephant coin series is one of the most robust silver bullion collections. The series started with only a 1 oz coin and gained a 1 kilo coin in the mid-2000s following the transfer from Zambia to Somalia as the nation of issue in 2004. In 2016, the series gained an astonishing six additional weights.
For the first time in a major silver bullion collection, the Bavarian State Mint introduced three fractional-weight silver bullion coins. Many proof collections have fractional silver, but few bullion collections do. That 2016 introduction include 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz silver, along with 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz options.
On the reverse of 2020 1 Kilo Silver Somalia Elephant coins is the image of two adult elephants. These African bush elephants are featured in side-profile relief and face inward toward the center of the design field and each other. The elephant on the left has much larger tusks, signifying its maturity and supremacy over the elephant on the right that has smaller tusks.
The obverse of 2020 Kilo Silver Somalia Elephant Coins bears the coat of arms for the Somali Republic. The crest itself consists of a crowned shield with a single star at its center and a background field of horizontal lines. There is a leopard on either side of the shield to support the crest. Inscriptions on this side include “Somali Republic,” “2020,” and the face value of the coins in Somali shillings.
