The Somalia Silver Elephant is the primary coin in the African Wildlife Series. Introduced in 1999, the coin was originally known as the Zambia Silver Elephant and had limited options that were largely confined to 1 oz silver and gold coins only. In 2004, the Bavarian State Mint transitioned the series from Zambia to Somalia, but little else changed.
Since the debut of this series, the Bavarian State Mint has offered the coins with the same obverse design concept each year. When it was the Zambia Silver Elephant, it featured that nation’s coat of arms on the obverse. Since 2004, the Somali coat of arms has graced the obverse. More importantly to the investors and collectors buying silver in this series, the coins have a new depiction of the African bush elephant on the reverse each year.
Somalia’s coat of arms is found in the obverse design of 2022 Somalia Silver Elephant Coins. The design features a crowned shield with a background field of horizontal lines and a single star at the center. The shield is supported by leopards on either side, with fern leaves and spears beneath the shield.
Two African bush elephants are featured in the reverse field of 2022 1 Kilo Silver Somalia Elephants. In this year’s exclusive design, a mother elephant is shown marching along the savanna with its young calf at its side. The two are shown in left-profile relief with birds flying overhead and trees dotting the horizon.
