Silver Elephant coins were first minted for the nation of Somalia in 2004, making this the 13th release in the series. In this listing, the coins are in perfect condition as graded by the NGC. The MS70 grading means that these coins have their full, original luster with no detracting flaws.

They are also early release issues, meaning that they were shipped from the mint to an NGC depository within 30 days of the initial release of the coins.


The obverse face of the 2016 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins bears the image of the Somalia coat of arms. You will notice that there are two leopards holding up a shield. On the shield, there is a single star over a background of horizontal lines.


The reverse image is that of a large male elephant. He stands along the banks of a river as the sun rises high in the sky in the distance. The river can be seen disappearing into the horizon.


This coin series has a unique history. The original series actually started in 1999. At this time, however, the coins were not minted for Somalia. Instead, they were minted for Zambia. Also interesting, the series is officially called the African Wildlife Series, but there ae no other coins that have been added to the series.

In 2017, the mint also added fractional and larger than 1 oz silver coin options. You can now purchase 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz Silver Somalian Elephant coins.
