Each of the 2021 1 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coins listed here at JM Bullion comes to you with an individual protective capsule. The coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a beautiful layer of 24-karat gold on the reverse field. Known as a gilded coin, this layer of gold is thin enough to not drastically increase the precious metal value of the coin, but does deliver incredible visual contrast between the African bush elephant design and its background field.
In the case of these 2021 Silver Elephants, the gilded layer is applied only to the African bush elephant on the reverse. The elephant’s figure stands out with great contrast against the silver background field and accompanying design elements. Bavarian State Mint, the issuer of the coins, did not complete the gilded layering. Emporium-Hamburg, a third-party dealer, applied this layer of gold to traditional BU versions of the coin.
Obverse design elements on the 2021 Somalia Silver Elephant include the Somalia coat of arms. The crowned shield at the center has a field of horizontal lines with a single star at its center. The shield is supported on the left and right by leopards, with fern leaves and spears shown below the design field.
Reverse visual elements on 2021 1 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coins include an African bush elephant on the savanna. The elephant has marched into the immediate foreground with its long tusks pointed forward and its trunk extending down into the design rim. This particular elephant is walking along a flat, open plain on the savanna with the branch of a nearby tree hanging overhead and another tree dotting the horizon in the distance. Above the elephant’s head, a single bird flies through the sky.
