The Somalia Elephant Series of 1 oz silver coins is available from the Bavarian State Mint on an annual basis. The 2015 coin was a unique issue in that it was the last year before the Bavarian State Mint increased the purity of the coins and added new weight options to the silver bullion range of coins. Right now, you can purchase 2015 Gilded Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of a 2015 Gilded Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin, you receive an item that has a protective plastic flip. This is the 12th annual issue of the African Wildlife Series silver coins for Somalia, with five issues before 2004 released for Zambia instead. In this particular listing, the 2015 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin you receive has a thin layer of 24-karat gold.
Known as a gilded silver coin, these products combine the beauty of silver and gold together into one specimen. The layer of gilded gold applied to these coins is so thin that the precious metal value of the coin is little changed, but the visual contrast of the gold and silver create collectible value for the products.
The obverse face of the 2015 Gilded Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin comes with the national coat of arms for Somalia. This seal includes a crowned shield with a single star in the center set against a background field of horizontal lines. The shield is supported by leopards and comes with two spears and fern leaves crossed below.
On the reverse side of 2015 Gilded Somalia Elephant Silver coins are the images of two adult African bush elephants. The pair are walking together in a line across the savannah as trees tower overhead in the background and birds fly through the sky. The gilded 24-karat gold layer is on this face of the coin and is applied only to the bodies of the two African bush elephants.
2015 was an important year in the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin series. Two significant changes would come to the series in 2016. The 2015 coins were the last issue without fractional-ounce silver coins and the last issue to use .999 pure silver rather than .9999 pure silver content.
