The Somalia Silver Elephant coin comes in a total of eight different weights, and the largest of those options is also one of the oldest. The 1 kilo coin was the second option introduced in the series after the 1 oz silver and it far predates the release of the fractional-ounce silver coins, as well as the 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver options. Now, 2021 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

Somalia Silver Elephant coins are part of a bullion coin series known broadly as the African Wildlife Series. The collection actually began life in 1999 as the Zambia Elephant Series, using the same design concept of ever-changing reverse images of the African bush elephant. From 1999 to 2003, the coins were issued as the Zambia Elephants.
In 2004, the Bavarian State Mint altered the nation of issue to release the coins for Somalia. The series continued with its 1 oz silver and gold options for several years, eventually adding the 1 Kilo coin. 2016 brought with it an increase in silver purity to .9999 pure silver, while 2017 brought 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver coins into the collection alongside the 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver coins.
For the obverse design element, the 2021 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coin features a depiction of the Somali coat of arms. The national coat of arms includes an image of a crowned shield with a single star overlaying a field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported on its left and right by leopards, with crossed spears and fern leaves below. These are draped in a ribbon banner.
In the reverse design of the 2021 Somalia Silver Elephant Coin, the Bavarian State Mint features yet another new design with the release of an image featuring a lone adult bush elephant. The African bush elephant is the largest living land mammal in the world today and one of three elephant species still living. The other two are the African forest elephant and the Asian elephant.
These 2021 1 Kilo Somalia Silver Elephant Coins are available to you with individual capsules and arrive in Brilliant Uncirculated condition courtesy of the Bavarian State Mint. The coins in this series do not have declared mintage caps, resulting in greater availability to all interested investors.
