When the African Wildlife Series Elephant Coins were introduced for Zambia in 1999, the series contained only 1 oz weight options. The collection remained that way even beyond the 2004 switch over to Somalia. In 2016, the series began to expand dramatically in the face of rising demand for silver and gold, as well as increasing popularity for the designs in the collection. For the Gold Somalia Elephant, this resulted in the introduction of a wide range of fractional weights.
All 2020 1 oz Gold Somalia Elephant Coins in this listing come to you with an individual protective plastic capsule. All coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Bavarian State Mint. In addition to the 1 oz coin, the Gold Somalia Elephant is offered in 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/25 oz, and 1/50 oz weight options.
On the reverse of 2020 Gold Somalia Elephant coins is the image of two African bush elephants. The massive land beasts are depicted in side-profile relief with the animal on the left boasting the long tusks of an aged adult, while the elephant on the right has shorter tusks. The beautiful ivory tusks of an African elephant are, unfortunately, some of the reason for their dwindling numbers. Poachers continue to hunt the elephants illegal to harvest the ivory in the tusks.
The obverse of 2020 1 oz Gold Somalia Elephant Coins includes the Somali coat of arms. This seal includes a shield with a crown at its top and a field of horizontal lines with a single star in the center. The shield is supported on either side by a leopard and has crossed spears and fern leaves below it.
