The Bavarian State Mint introduced the Silver Elephant Series in 1999 as the leading coin in the African Wildlife Series. The coins come with a new depiction of the African bush elephant on the reverse side of the coins each year. Even after the switch from Zambia in 2003 to Somalia in 2004, the mint continued using new designs on the reverse each year.
In 2016, the series underwent a great deal of transformation. To this point in its history, the series had featured a 1 oz silver, 1 Kilo silver, and 1 oz gold coin as the main options. In 2016, the silver content of the coins went up from .999 fineness to .9999 fineness, with additional weights introduced. Among those silver weights, you will find these 2 oz silver coins.
The obverse of 2022 Somalia Silver Elephants comes with an image of the Somali coat of arms. This design shows the national seal with a crowned shield that has a single star at the center. The shield has a background field of horizontal lines and leopards supporting it on either side. There are spears and fern leaves beneath the shield.
On the reverse side of the 2022 1 oz Silver Elephant is an image of the African bush elephant. In the exclusive 2022 design, the Bavarian State Mint showcases a large, adult elephant walking along the savanna with its young calf by its side. Birds fly overhead as trees dot the horizon in the distance.
These 2022 2 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with protective plastic capsules.
