Silver Somalia Elephants might offer collectors the most diverse collection of unique BU coins with various finishes. The Bavarian State Mint issues the coins initially, but it is Emporium-Hamburg that applies these varying finishes in low-mintage sets. These finishes include a 24-karat gold known as a gilded specimen. Colorized options include an individual colorized coin and a day-night two-coin set with alternating daytime and nighttime colorizations. These Black-and-White Sets are the most unique.
The 2021 1 oz Silver Somalia Elephant Black and White Two-Coin Sets feature a thin application of ruthenium, a metal from the Platinum Group Metals, on each coin’s reverse surface. On one of these coins, you will notice that the ruthenium has been applied only to the body of the African bush elephant, excluding the tusks. The other coin features a thin layer of ruthenium throughout the entire background field with only the tusks given the same application on the body of the elephant.
On the obverse field of 2021 Silver Somalia Elephant Black and White Two-Coin Sets is a depiction of the national coat of arms. The Somali coat of arms is supported by two leopards, one on either side of a crowned shield. The crowned shield features a background of horizontal lines with a single star set at the center of the design.
The reverse face of the 2021 1 oz Silver Somalia Elephant Black and White Two-Coin Sets comes with an image of an African bush elephant. The bush elephant marches forward in this design with a few trees in the distant background and a bird flying overhead.
