The obverse of 2023 Somalia Silver Elephant Coins features the Somalia coat of arms. This national emblem was adopted in 1956 and features a framed shield bearing the Somali flag. The flag is supported by a pair of cheetahs, who stand upon two spears with palm leaves and a white ribbon. There are also inscriptions on the obverse that read Somali Republic, 2023, 10 Shillings.
On the reverse side of 2023 1/10 oz Silver Elephant Coins there is a bush elephant design. In this memorable image, the elephant is seen in closeup facing right. She has her trunk wrapped around a branch as she pulls leaves from it for a meal. In the background, we see the beautiful African countryside. Across the border of the coin, there are inscriptions reading African Wildlife, Elephant, 1/10 oz Ag 999.9.
A different bush elephant design has appeared on every release of this series since it began in 2004. This creature is one of two elephant species in Africa, with the other being the forest elephant. Considered the world’s largest land animal, the bush elephant can reach nearly 25 feet in length and weigh as much as 11 tons. Due to habitat destruction and poaching, the bush elephant is currently listed as endangered.
