The African bush elephant is the focus of the African Wildlife Series at the Bavarian State Mint. Although a Silver Leopard coin is now available for Somalia in the African Wildlife Series, the African bush elephant was the first and remains the longest-running design element in the African Wildlife Series. The coins are famously issued each year with a new depiction of the bush elephant on the reverse with each release.
All of the 2021 5 oz Silver Somalia Elephants offered to you today come with protective plastic capsules and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Bavarian State Mint issues the coins with no declared mintages, making it possible for investors to get these coins with greater ease each year.
On the obverse side of 2021 5 oz Silver Somalia Elephants is an image of the coat of arms for Somalia. The design includes a crowned shield in the center with a star overlaying a field of horizontal lines in the background. There is a leopard on either side of the shield to support the seal, with crossed fern leaves and spears beneath the design. There is also a ribbon that is draped over the spears and a beaded border to the design element.
The reverse face of 2021 Silver Somalia Elephants includes the African bush elephant. The largest land mammal in the world today, the African bush elephant’s girth is evident in this design as its large frame meanders into the foreground. The animal’s tusks and trunk are evident, with its ears flapped out and a bird flying overhead. You can see trees in both the foreground and the distant background of the design element.
