The Somalian Elephant Series is known for its stunning yearly designs. Both numismatists and investors can appreciate the craftsmanship put into these coins. Since the purity of the coins has increased to .9999 pure silver, the popularity has also increased. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin in High Relief from Provident Metals.
The coins in this listing were minted in high relief. This means that there is greater contrast between the design sets and background field. To get this look, the silver blanks are put under immense pressure.
The obverse face of these coins contains the new image of the African elephant. In this rendition, an adult bull elephant is standing on the edge of a river. The elephants head is tilted back, and its trunk is held high as it lets out a call. In the background, you can see the sun rising. Engravings on this side of the coin include the name of the coin series, the weight, the purity, and the metal content of the coin.
The reverse side of each coin features the image of the Somalian coat of arms. The engravings include the year of issue, the name Somali Republic, and the value of the coin in Somali Schillings.
The African Wildlife Series has an interesting history. The series was first created for the nation of Zambia in 1999. However, in 2004, the coins started being created for Somalia. This change happened despite the fact that no official status exists for the coin. These coins are minted by the Bavarian State Mint, who says that they created these coins with authorization from Somalian officials, but the head of Somalias Central Bank says otherwise.
