The living elephant species today consist of the African bush elephant, African forest elephant, and the Asian elephant. The bush elephant lives on the savannas and other open locales of the African continent, while the forest elephant inhabits the dense forests and jungles of the continent.
Among these three living species of elephant, the African bush elephant tips the scales as the largest and heaviest mammal in the world. The African forest elephants are notably smaller than their bush counterparts and the Asian elephant is the second-largest mammal in the world.
The reverse of 2020 2 oz Silver Somalia Elephant Coins includes the image of the African bush elephant. These animals are depicted in side-profile relief as each one faces in at the other. Both animals have long ivory tusks and you can see the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro rising toward the sky in the background.

The crest includes the crowned shield with a single star set against a background field of horizontal lines. There is a leopard on either side of the shield to support it and two spears and fern leaves cross beneath the shield. The engraving “Somali Republic” is above the shield design.
