The Gold Somalia Elephant Series is the primary option from the Bavarian State Mint in its African Wildlife Series. Introduced in 1999 as the Zambia Elephant Series, since 2004 the coins have been released on behalf of Somalia. The 2016 release brought with it increased purity in certain coins, a new platinum coin, and additional weights in silver and gold. Now, 2021 1/4 oz Gold Somalia Elephants are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

  • Consists of One-Quarter Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold in BU condition.

In 1999, the Bavarian State Mint introduced the first coin in its African Wildlife Series. The African bush elephant is the first species to feature in the series and was available as the Zambia Elephants from 1999 to 2003. The coins were initially only available in 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold. In 2004, the series shifted and became known as the Somalia Elephants.

From 2004 to 2015, the coins were available as the Somalia Elephants in gold and silver. In 2016, various changes came to the series. First and foremost, the silver series saw its purity increase from .999 to .9999 fine silver. The silver series gained a number of different weights for the first time, including fractional ounces. The gold coins gained five fractional-ounce options and a Platinum Elephant was introduced for the first time ever.

The obverse of the 2021 1/4 oz Gold Somalia Elephants features a depiction of the coat of arms for Somalia. The national coat of arms for Somalia includes a crowned shield with a background field of horizontal lines and a single star in the center. The use of a single star is similar to the national flag that features a single white star on a field of blue. Somalia’s coat of arms is supported by leopards on either side with spears and fern leaves below.

On the reverse side of 2021 1/4 oz Gold Elephants is a vision of the African bush elephant. The largest land mammal in the world today, the African bush elephant is considered an endangered species due to changing habitats on the African continent and the threat of poachers killing the animals to harvest the ivory from their tusks.

These 2021 1/4 oz Gold Somalia Elephants are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are packaged individually in protective capsules with multiples of 20 available in acrylic tubes.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
