These Gold Elephant coins are part of a larger series that includes silver and platinum coins. For 2017, there are six new weights in the silver series and two new weights in the gold series. These 2017 ½ Gram Somalia Gold Elephant Coins have been available in this weight in recent years.
On the obverse of each 2017 Somalia Gold Elephant you’ll find the image of a single adult elephant standing in the middle of the open savannahs of Africa, with a small hut and palm tree visible in the background.
The reverse of all 2017 ½ Gram Somalia Gold Elephant Coins bears the coat of arms for Somalia. The heraldic shield includes a singular star in the center, set against a backdrop of horizontal lines. There are leopards on either side of the crest holding it upright, with spears of war featured below the crest and wrapped in a ribbon.
Each of the 2017 ½ Gram Somalia Gold Elephant Coins in this listing is a BU specimen. Coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the coining process.
