As the popularity of the Somalia Elephant Series from the Bavarian State Mint has increased, so too have the number of different options in the series. 2016 was one of the biggest releases of the Somalia Elephant Silver Coins, with the introduction of new weights, colorized versions, gilded coins, and even privy marks. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2016 Somalia Elephant Lunar Monkey Privy 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
In 2016, the Bavarian State Mint made significant changes to the Somalia Elephant Silver Coins. Traditionally available only in 1 oz silver, 2016 saw the introduction of several fractional-ounce coins in silver for the first time. Additionally, the coins increased from .999 pure silver content to .9999 pure silver content.
On the obverse face of the 2016 Somalia Elephant Lunar Monkey Privy 1 oz Silver Coin is a depiction of the coat of arms for Somalia. The national shield is a crowned shield that has a background field of horizontal lines with a single star set in the middle of the shield. Leopards support the shield from either side as two spears cross below with fern leaves and a ribbon draped over the spears.
The reverse side of 2016 Somalia Elephant Lunar Monkey Privy 1 oz Silver Coin includes the image of an African bush elephant standing close in the foreground with its trunk raised high into the air as the sun sits low on the horizon in the distance. Along the outer-right side of the rim, you will find a small circle with the monkey privy mark inside to honor the fact that 2016 is the Year of the Monkey on the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
The Bavarian State Mint initially offered the African Elephant coin as the Zambia Elephant Silver Coin. This was the case for the 1999 to 2003 date marks. Starting in 2004, the series shifted to Somalia and featured only 1 oz gold and silver coins, for the most part, through 2016. This year saw an explosion in options that included these unique privy mark coins.
2016 Somalia Elephant Lunar Monkey Privy 1 oz Silver coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are available individually with capsules while multiples ship in tubes of 25 or boxes of 500 coins.
