    The Somalia Elephant Series of silver and gold coins from the Bavarian State Mint have quietly become one of the most coveted coins in the precious metals industry. Unlike other major annual releases, the Somalia Silver Elephant coin features a new design on the obverse face of the coin each year. Today, 2018 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coins are available to you online at JMBullion.com.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Arrives inside of a protective plastic capsule.
    • 15th design issue as the Somalia Elephant Series!
    • Contains 1 Kilo (32.15 Troy oz) of .9999 pure silver in BU condition.
    • Face value of 2,000 Somali Shillings.
    • Obverse includes the latest design of the African Elephant.
    • Reverse features the Somali coat of arms.

    Somalia Elephant coins originated in 1999 as the Zambian Elephant Series from the Bavarian State Mint. The coins were not particularly popular at the time, with low mintage figures and a lower silver fineness. In 2004 the program shifted to Somalia and emerged as the Somalia Silver Elephant collection.

    However, it was the Great Recession that really helped this coin program surge to popularity. Previous, lower mintage caps were removed and the coins rotating annual designs helped propel in the coins to greater prominence. It doesnt hurt either that in recent years the series has expanded to feature a platinum option, increased silver content to .9999 purity, and added fractional-weight silver bullion options as well.

    Each 2018 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coin listed here is in BU condition. Coins in this condition may feature minor flaws from the production process, but show no signs of wear and tear. These minor flaws are limited to contact marks, breaks in the luster, and spotted surfaces.

    On the obverse of the Somalia Silver Elephant Coin youll find the latest African elephant design in the series. The largest and heaviest land mammal in the world, this depiction of the elephant offers a close look at its face as it raises its massive trunk toward the edges of the coins design field.

    The reverse of all 2018 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coins features the coat of arms for Somalia. This design has a single star set against horizontal stripes on a shield, with leopards on either side and crossed spears below draped in a ribbon and fern leaves in the background. The coins nation of issue, year of issue, and face value are featured on this side.

    Opened in the 12th century, the Bavarian State Mint is one of the worlds oldest operating mint facilities. Today it is a state-owned entity of the Free State of Bavaria and located in the city of Munich.

    How To Steps: Filing a Police Report+

    As part of the claims process at JM Bullion, we require customers to file a police report with local law enforcement and provide documentation of said report to us. If you have not previously filed a police report, we can help provide you with some basic how-to steps. First and foremost, note there are three options available in many jurisdictions:

    1. File a report in person
    2. File a report over the phone
    3. File a report online

    Step 1: Locate Nearest Department

    You should file a police report with the nearest, appropriate law enforcement agency. If you live within city limits, your local police department is the proper authority to file a report with. If you live outside established city limits, the local sheriffs department may have jurisdiction. You can locate the proper department by conducting an online search or calling 311 (information), if that service is available in your area.

    Step 2: Provide Detailed Information

    Whether you file a report in person, over the phone, or online, make sure that you provide as much detail about the incident as possible. When it involves property loss or damage, make sure to provide relevant financial information as well.

    Step 3: Obtain a Copy of the Report

    When it comes to filing a claim with JM Bullion, we require a copy of the police report. If you filed a report in person, you can obtain a written copy immediately or get a case number and retrieve a copy of the report when its ready.

    When you file a report on the phone or online, make sure to provide contact information such as a telephone number and email address so you can receive a copy of the report.

    Please Note

    If you file a report online, you can often print a copy of your report instantly upon submitting the paperwork online. Additionally, you may find that some jurisdictions do not allow you to file a report over the phone. If you need further details on filing a report, you should call your local law enforcement department or 311 for assistance in starting your police report.

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    We will notify you by email once your order ships. You can also check the current status by logging in to your account or using ourTrack An Orderpage.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, 4 Shipping Method, you will see the available shipping options for your order. If your purchase is eligible for free shipping, the pre-selected option will be base shipping, which is either USPS or UPS at our choice. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How do I ship my buyback order to you?+

    We utilize UPS for all buyback shipments. All parcels must be either picked up by UPS or delivered to a UPS Customer Center. The UPS Store is not the same as a UPS Customer Center. We cannot guarantee liability if the parcel is dropped off at a UPS Store, UPS Access Point, UPS Drop Box, or UPS Authorized Service Providers.

    Alternatively, you can ship your order on your own. If you choose to do so, we strongly recommend sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Required) and purchase insurance to cover the full amount of your items. Please be advised that it may be faster and more cost-effective to ship your order using our prepaid UPS label than sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Requied).

    Safe Shipping and Packaging Checklist

    • Secure merchandise in smaller box
      • Use additional packaging materials such as padded envelopes, bubble wrap, paper, foam pad, making sure movement of merchandise is restricted. Shake the package to be sure there is no rattle.
    • Mark tracking information
      • Mark tracking number, shipper, and recipient information outside the smaller box. Its needed in case the shipping information on the outside box gets damaged and becomes illegible during transit.
    • Double box your shipments
      • Place the small box inside a larger courier box. Make sure movement is restricted with additional cushioning and double boxing dramatically increases the strength and integrity of the parcel.
    • Proper enclosure
      • Please seal all seams or flaps on the outside of the box with clear tape in addition to adhesive on flap. This is an important step to avoid any tampering.
    • Proper labeling
      • Beware of wording which might express reference to valuable goods. Obvious words that directly relate to valuables are strictly prohibited. Abbreviate names, i.e. turn Robs coin Shop to Robs Shop.
    • Important Considerations
      • Act as if all packages are not insured
      • Include a packing slip and note a trade # and/or account name so this parcel can be verified properly
      • Never reveal the contents of your shipment, even to the courier
      • Never state a value or reference to valuables anywhere on the box or label
      • Do not ship a package with a value in excess of $60,000 per box. We have provided an adequate number of label(s) to accommodate your shipment.
    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+
