In 2004, the Bavarian State Mint rebranded its African Wildlife Elephant Coins from the Zambia Elephants to the Somalia Elephants.

The Bavarian State Mint first issued the African Wildlife Series coins in 1999 as the Zambia Elephant Coins. The concept for the coins remained the same, with the focus on a new reverse image of the African bush elephant each year and the national coat of arms on the obverse. In 2004, the program was shifted from Zambia to Somalia. Originally available as 1 oz gold and 1 oz silver, the series now features various silver weights, gold weights, and even newer platinum weights.
All of these 2022 Gold Somalia Elephant African Wildlife Prestige Proof Coin Sets are available to you with plastic capsules to protect each of the four individual coins. The four coins are housed together in a wooden presentation box and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Within these 2022 Gold Elephant Prestige Proof Set, you will find the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins from 2022. The set features coins that were struck in proof with frosted design elements and mirrored background fields.
On the obverse of 2022 Gold Somalia Elephant Coins in the African Wildlife Prestige Proof Set is a depiction of the Somali coat of arms. The seal for Somalia includes a crowned shield with a single star at the center set against a background field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported on either side by heraldic leopards.
The reverse field of the 2022 Gold Somalia Elephants in the Four-Coin Prestige Proof Set comes with an image of two African bush elephants. The design depicts a mother elephant with its young calf as the pair walks along the savanna in left-profile relief.
