The Somalia Silver Elephant is viewed as one of the world’s more popular coins, even if it is not reflected in the sales figures for the coin. In honor of the 12thcoin in the series, the Bavarian State Mint released a truly unique coin. The 2015 Somalia Elephant Puzzle 1 Kilo Silver Coin is now available online at Provident Metals.


  • Ships in custom capsule and wooden presentation box, including Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Extremely limited mintage of just 215 coins!
  • Contains 1 kilogram, or 32.15 oz., of .999 pure silver.
  • Issued with a face value of 800 Shillings.
  • Obverse features the Somali Republic’s coat of arms.
  • Reverse features the one-of-a-kind Elephant Puzzle design.

The African Elephant was first featured on a coin in 1999 when it was released as part of the same African Wildlife Series, but struck for the nation of Zambia instead. Beginning in 2004, the Bavarian State Mint produced the African Elephant coins each year for Somalia, creating a new design for the reverse each year.

In honor of the 12thyear of its production for Somalia, the Bavarian State Mint created a puzzle coin that features a unique 2015 coin in the center, with interlocking pieces that go around the outside featuring all the reverse designs dating back to 2004.


The obverse side bears the Somali Republics coat of arms, the year of minting, and the face value. The interlocking pieces each feature the reverse design from their respective mintage, while the obverse of each bears the same coat of arms. Together with the face value of the individual, interlocking pieces, this product has a total face value of 1,000 Shillings.


On the reverse sign of the central coin, the image of an elephant raising its trunk and stomping through the grass is sent against a backdrop of the African continent. Engravings read 12th Anniversary African Wildlife Elephant and 2004-2015.

The Bavarian State Mint is a state-owned entity of the Free Republic of Bavaria, and is headquartered in Munich. The Mint is one of four state-owned entities in Germany, and though it produces these coins for the government in Somalia, its ability to guarantee them remains suspect.
