The Silver Elephants of the African Wildlife Series started out in 1999 as the Zambia Elephant Series. The coins were primarily issued as 1 oz silver coins during the 1999-2003 Zambian Series. Even the change to Somalia in 2004 resulted in little change. A new obverse design was offered reflecting Somalia and a 1 Kilo coin was eventually introduced. More weights would not be added until 2017, one year after the purity of the coins was increased from .999 to .9999 fineness.
All of these 2022 Silver Somalia Elephant First Struck 7-Coin Collections are available to you with seven of the 2022-dated Silver Elephants inside. Each coin has its own protective plastic capsule and the coins are housed together in a black presentation box. The only coin in the series not available in this set is the 1 kilogram coin.
On the obverse of 2022 Silver Somalia Elephants in the First Struck 7-Coin Collection is the national coat of arms. The seal of Somalia features a crowned shield with a single star at the center set against a background field of horizontal lines. The field includes the identifying hallmarks of the coin and a beaded border.
The reverse side of the coins in the 2022 Silver Somalia Elephant First Struck 7-Coin Collections features a new depiction of the largest land mammal in the world. The African bush elephant is shown here with its young calf walking by its side along the savanna. The coins show trees on the horizon in the distance and a flock of birds flying overhead.
