The Bavarian State Mint introduced its African Wildlife Elephant Series in 1999. The coins were originally issued for Zambia as the Zambia Elephant Series with silver and gold options, with a switch to Somalia in 2004. Since then, the popularity of the series has continued to expand as the new designs each year attract collectors and the wide range of options across three precious metals appeal to investors.

Gold Elephant coins from the mint consisted of just a 1 oz specimen for much of its early history. From 1999 to 2015, 1 oz gold was the only option available. In 2016, the series expanded to feature five fractional-ounce coins that include 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/25 oz, and 1/50 oz coins. In 2017, a final option was added in the form of 1 Gram gold coins.

On the obverse side of 2021 Gold Somalia Elephants is the national coat of arms. The official emblem for the Somali Republic includes a shield that is crowned along the top with a background field of horizontal lines. At the center of the shield is a single star, similar to the national flag with its single star on a blue field. There are leopards on either side of the national shield with spears and fern leaves below it.
The reverse face of 2021 1/50 oz Gold Elephants includes a depiction of the African bush elephant. Brand-new for 2021, this design captures an image of the bush elephant walking forward with its ears flapped out and a bird flying overhead in the background field. In the distance beneath one ear of the elephant, you will notice trees that dot the horizon in the savannah.
