The Somalia Silver Elephant Series debuted in 2004, having transitioned that year from the previously issued Zambia Silver Elephant Series. The mint origin remained the same, the Bavarian State Mint in Munich, Germany, and the design concept remained the same for the reverse. The only noticeable change in the series was the national coat of arms depicted on the obverse.
For the obverse design of 2022 Somalia Silver Elephant Coin, you will find the Somali coat of arms. The national seal of Somalia features a crowned shield with horizontal lines in the background and a single star at the center. The use of a single star in the shield is in line with the national flag of Somalia, a design with a field of bright blue and a single white star. The shield is supported by leopards on either side and has fern leaves and spears crossed beneath.
In the reverse design element of 2022 1/10 oz Silver Elephant Coins, the Bavarian State Mint offers yet another stunning new depiction of the African bush elephant. In this design, an adult elephant is shown walking along the savanna in left-profile relief with its small calf at its side.
