The Somalia Gold Elephant series offers some of the most wide-ranging options of any gold bullion series. The series originally included only a 1 oz gold weight. The 2016 expansion of the Somalia Elephant Series eventually resulted in the debut of more weights in the gold bullion series. This includes some rarely used weights such as 1/25 oz, 1/50 oz, 1 Gram, and even 1/2 Gram.
On the obverse of 2021 Somalia Gold Elephant Coins is the image of the national coat of arms. The Somali coat of arms offers a single star at the center of a shield that is backed with horizontal lines. The crowned shield is supported on either side by leopards, with fern leaves and spears beneath the shield draped in a ribbon. The design element has a beaded border.
The reverse face of the 2021 1/2 Gram Gold Elephant features the latest image of the African bush elephant. In the 2021 design, the Bavarian State Mint depicts a large, mature African bush elephant marching into the foreground. The beast has gotten so close that its trunk extends out of the central design element and into the edge of the design field. There is a single tree in the distant background on the horizon as a bird flies overhead.
Founded in 1158, the Bavarian State Mint is now one of the five national German mints. In addition to producing precious metals bullion pieces, the Bavarian State Mint is responsible for around 21% of currency in circulation in Germany.
