It was the only collection to combine such unique fractional-ounce and gram options for investors.
The obverse side of 2021 1/25 oz Gold Somalia Elephants comes with a depiction of the national coat of arms.

The shield is supported on each side by leopards with crossed spears and fern leaves below.
On the reverse face of the 2021 Gold Somalia Elephant is an image of the African bush elephant. The largest living land mammal in the world, the African bush elephant is one of only three remaining elephant species alive today, two of which live on the African continent. In this year’s design element, the bush elephant is shown walking toward the foreground. Leaves are shown above its head in the foreground and another tree is visible in the distant background.
