The largest living mammal in the world, elephants live in family units known as herds that are matriarchal in nature, with females leading the herd. The design featured in 2022 shows an adult elephant at the front of the line with a young calf by its side. Both elephants are shown in left-profile relief with a flock of birds overhead and trees on the horizon in the distant background.
