Each 2022 5 oz Silver Somalia Elephant Coin in this listing is offered to you inside acrylic capsules. The 5 oz Silver Elephants available here come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. 5 oz Silver Somalia Elephants have only been available in the series since 2017, the same year that several other weights were introduced.
The 2016 date mark was the first year in a two-year series of changes for the Silver Elephant Series. The existing 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver coins in the series came with .999 fine silver from 2004 to 2015. In 2016, that was improved to .9999 fine silver content. In 2017, the mint added 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz coins to go along with the existing 1 oz and 1 Kilogram coins.
The obverse of 2022 Silver Somalia Elephants features the coat of arms of Somalia. In this design, the national shield is supported by heraldic leopards on either side with crossed spears and fern leaves beneath. The shield includes a field of horizontal lines with a single star at the center of the design.
On the reverse side of the 2022 5 oz Silver Elephants is a depiction of African bush elephants. This year’s exclusive design comes with an image of an adult bush elephant walking along in left-profile relief with its young calf marching along at its side. The design includes trees dotting the horizon in the distance and a small flock of birds flying overhead.
