When the African Wildlife Elephant Series was introduced in 1999, it was available as the Zambia Elephant Series with 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold options. In 2004, the series transitioned to Somalia and became known as the Somalia Elephant Series. The collection retained 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold options through 2016. In 2016, the series expanded to offer fractional-ounce coins in silver and gold, enhanced the purity of silver coins from .999 to .9999 pure silver, and debuted a Somalia Platinum Elephant coin.
The obverse face of 2021 1/10 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coins depicts the national coat of arms for the nation of Somalia. Its national coat of arms uses the single star from the national flag at the very center of the design. That single star is featured on a crowned shield with a background field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported by leopards on either side with fern leaves and leopards crossed beneath.
On the reverse side of 2021 Somalia Gold Elephant Coins, you will find the all-new design for the 2021 date mark. In this year’s design, a large adult elephant is walking directly toward the viewer in front-facing relief. The massive sizes of its head dominates the design field, with long tusks visible, its ears flapped out, and its trunk reaching down into the border field.
