Beginning in 2016, the Bavarian State Mint began issuing the Somalia Elephant Silver Coins in weights that went beyond the previously issued 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver coins. As part of the expansion of the series, the coins were now available in the so-called Proof Prestige Sets. These new sets showcased the original 1 oz coin with two of its new fractional-ounce counterparts and one of the new heavier-weight coins. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant African Wildlife Prestige Silver Coin Sets online at Provident Metals.
The 2016 issue of the Somalia Elephant Silver coins saw the Bavarian State Mint expand the popular series beyond its original offering of only 1 oz and 1 Kilo silver coins. Newly added to the series in 2016 were the 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz fractional-ounce coins, as well as 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver coins. Another factor that made the 2016 release important was the increase of silver purity in the coins from .999 to .9999.
The obverse side of 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant African Wildlife Prestige Silver Coins features the Somali coat of arms. This official seal of the nation includes a crowned shield with a single star at its center set against a backdrop of horizontal lines. There is a leopard in support of the shield on either side with crossed spears and fern leaves below draped in a ribbon. Inscriptions include Somali Republic above the shield, the date mark of 2016 split two digits on either side of the shield, and the face value of each respective coin inscribed below.
On the reverse face of 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant Silver Coins in this African Wildlife Prestige Set is the image of a large bull African bush elephant. The massive creature raises its trunk in the air as its tusks extend down from its face and its ears are perked. Inscriptions on this field include African Wildlife, Elephant, and Ag 9999, along with the specific weight for each coin.
The 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant African Wildlife Prestige Silver Coin Set includes a 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, and 2 oz silver coin from the 2016 release. Each coin has .9999 pure silver content with a face value of 25 Shillings, 50 Shillings, 100 Shillings, or 200 Shillings, respectively.
