The Silver Elephants in the African Wildlife Series was first offered from 1999 to 2003 as the Zambia Elephant. The coins used the same design approach that the modern series does, which is to feature new designs of the African bush elephant on the reverse face each year. The collection was halted as an issue for Zambia in 2004 and switched to Somalia for that year of release.
From 2004 to 2015, the collection largely featured 1 oz silver and 1 Kilo silver coins. In 2016, the silver collection increased significantly. The 2 oz silver coin was one of several options introduced alongside the new 5 oz and 10 oz silver coins.
On the obverse side of 2021 2 oz Silver Somalia Elephants is an image of the Somali coat of arms. The national coat of arms boasts a crowned shield with a single star set at the center against a background field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported by leopards and includes spears and fern leaves beneath the design element.
The reverse face of 2021 Silver Somalia Elephants comes with a design showcasing the African bush elephant as it walks toward the viewer. The elephant is shown in the immediate foreground with its ears flapped out to its side and its trunk dangling down into the border field where inscriptions are located on this face of the coin. The background field is dotted with trees on the savannah as leaves of another tree and a bird linger overhead of the elephant.
These 2021 2 oz Silver Somalia Elephants are available from the Bavarian State Mint in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with individual protective plastic capsules.
