Each 2016 1 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Monkey Privy coin in this listing is in BU condition. Silver coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
First produced in 2004 with Somalia as the nation of issue, the coins had extremely limited mintages of just 5,000 silver coins annually through 2008. The obverse design used each year was changed to create collector value for the series. At no point in the series has the same design been used twice.
These Somalia Silver Elephant coins feature a unique Monkey Privy added to the obverse of the coins design field. Celebrating the Year of the Monkey on the Lunar Calendar, known also as the Zodiac, the mark is featured on the right side of the coins design field and includes the image of a seated monkey.
The obverse side of the coin features the latest African elephant image. In the design, a male elephant is found standing along the banks of a river. The sun rises high in the distance as the river snakes off toward the horizon.
On the reverse is the image of the coat of arms for Somalia. It features two young leopards holding up a shield that bears a single star on a background field of horizontal lines. The face value and year of issue are included on this side.
