The Silver Somalia Elephants are produced on an annual basis with no mintage caps as of 2008. The series once featured only 1 oz and 1 Kilogram silver coins with mintage caps on the annual releases, but the increased interest in this series following the Great Recession and its continued use of new designs on the reverse resulted in the Bavarian State Mint producing more coins with each date mark.
The obverse side of 2021 1 Kilo Silver Somalia Elephants includes an image of the Somali coat of arms. This version of the national emblem includes a crowned shield with spear-point tips at the crown and a field of horizontal lines. Against that field of horizontal lines, a single star is set in the center of the visual field. The shield is supported by leopards on the sides and comes with crossed spears and fern leaves beneath.
On the reverse face of 2021 Silver Somalia Elephants is an image of the African bush elephant. This mature bush elephant is shown walking toward the viewer with its ears flapped out in a display of aggression. The elephant will use its wide, flat ears to increase its size and appear more imposing to predators. There is a bird in the sky above the elephant’s head and trees on the savannah in the background field.
The Bavarian State Mint was founded in 1158 in the city of Munich. The mint is operated by the German national government and owned by the Free State of Bavaria. It is one of five official German mints producing bullion specimens and German Euros for use in the economy.
