The Somalia Elephant Series was introduced by the Bavarian State Mint in 1999. The coin series was first known as the Zambian Elephant coin program through 2003 and featured only 1 oz weights in both silver and gold. Following the 2004 shift to Somalia, the program continued to feature limited mintages and 1 oz weights only.
2016 saw a number of big changes for the collection. Though proof options in silver and gold existed previously in varying weights, the bullion series saw expansion that included new fractional weights in silver and a growing number of gold bullion coins, including 1/25 oz, 1/50 oz, and these 1/2 Gram coins.
On the reverse of 2020 1/2 Gram Somalia Gold Elephant Coins is the newest design of the African bush elephant for the series. Here, you will find the profile image of two adult elephants. Both elephants have long tusks that not only identify them as adult elephants, but also point to the age of each mammal based on the length of their respective tusks. The peak of Mount Kilimanjaro is depicted in the background field.
The obverse field of 2020 Somalia Gold Elephant Coins includes the coat of arms for Somalia. This design includes the crowned shield with a background field of horizontal lines and a single star in the center. The shield is supported on either side by a leopard, with two spears and fern leaves crossed below.
These 2020 1/2 Gram Somalia Gold Elephant Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual specimens ship inside of protective plastic capsules with multiples of 20 offered in mint tubes.
