Gold Elephant Coins from the Bavarian State Mint represent arguably the most diverse option in the Somalia Elephant Series. The coins in this collection come in silver, gold, and platinum, with the platinum release representing the slimmest option with just a 1 oz coin available. The silver series features fractional-ounce weights and larger-than-1-oz options. However, the gold series offers a wide range of fractional-ounce coins that no other gold bullion collection can match.

Gold Somalia Elephants were available prior to 2016 in the same 1 oz weight as the Silver Somalia Elephant. The 2016 and 2017 release of Somalia Elephants by the Bavarian State Mint marked a significant uptick in the variety of coins available in the series. Not only were fractional-ounce silver coins introduced for the first time ever, but so too was a 1 oz platinum coin and several unique gold weights. Among those, the 1/2 Gram Gold Elephant.
All of the 2021 1/2 Gram Gold Somalia Elephants listed here come with either individual packaging or bulk packaging. When you purchase these coins as singles or multiples up to 19, you will receive the coins inside of individual plastic capsules. Multiples of 20 coins ship inside of acrylic tubes. Each of the coins is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
In the obverse design of the 2021 Gold Somalia Elephant, the Somali coat of arms is featured in the design element. The national coat of arms for Somalia is set at the center of the design field with a beaded border around the edge of the coin’s design field. The design of the national coat of arms includes a single star set against a backdrop of horizontal lines on a crowned shield. The shield is supported by leopards on either side.
For the reverse face of 2021 1/2 Gram Gold Elephants comes with a depiction of the African bush elephant. The largest living land mammal in the world today, the African bush elephant is depicted here in front-facing relief as it marches toward the viewer. The African plains stretch out into the distance behind the elephant as its trunk dangles down into the lower rim of the field.
