When you purchase a 2016 Gilded Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin through this Provident Metals listing, the item you receive will arrive with an individual acrylic capsule and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. These particular coins have a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied to the reverse design element to create visual contrast between the design element and the background field of the coins.


The obverse field of 2016 Gilded Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins includes the coat of arms for Somalia. This is the national emblem and borrows one primary element from the national flag. Somalias flag offers a field of blue with a single white star in the center. In the coat of arms design, you will notice the crowned shield has a single star set against a background of horizontal lines. There is a leopard supporting the shield from either side with crossed spears and ferns leaves below draped in a ribbon.


On the reverse face of 2016 Gilded Somalia Elephant Silver Coins is a depiction of an African bush elephant as it raises its truck. The massive beast is standing near the banks of a body of water on the savannah with a grassy shoreline at its feet, trees in the distance, and the sun rising in the sky. The 24-karat gilded layer is featured on this side of the coin with the application limited to the body of the African bush elephant.


2016 was a landmark year for the Somalia Elephant Series. Though it wasnt a memorable anniversary date mark, it did represent a significant expansion and enhancement of the series. The collection saw the addition of fractional-ounce silver for the first time ever, more weights between 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver introduced, more gold coins made available, and the increase of silver purity from .999 to .9999 in all silver bullion coins.
