There are few coin programs available that offer investors the chance to buy silver that comes in weights other than 1 oz silver and 1 Kilo silver. Among the most popular collections with these kinds of alternative options is the Somalia Silver Elephant. Produced by the Bavarian State Mint, the coins were once issued for Zambia and are now issued for Somalia as of 2004.

The Somalia Silver Elephant Series was originally offered in just 1 oz silver. After its switch from Zambia to Somalia in 2004, the series eventually gained a 1 Kilo silver coin. In 2017, the series saw its most significant expansion. Now offering 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver alongside those original options, the Somalia Silver Elephant is more diverse than collections such as the Mexican Libertad or Lunar Series II and Lunar Series III coin programs.
The obverse side of 2021 5 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coins features a depiction of the Somali coat of arms. The design of the national seal includes a single star at the center of a crowned shield that has a background field of horizontal lines. There are leopards in support of the shield on either side and crossed fern leaves with spears below.
On the reverse face of 2021 Somalia Silver Elephant Coins is an image of an African bush elephant. The bush elephant shown here is in front-facing relief as it walks along the savannahs of Africa. The creature is approaching the foreground of the coin’s design field and boasts large, flapped out ears with long tusks and a long trunk.
The Bavarian State Mint was founded in 1158 in Munich, the capital of Bavaria. The mint is one of Germany’s five national mints and is owned and operated by the government of the Free State of Bavaria.
