On the obverse side of the 2016 Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coin is a depiction of the Somali coat of arms.

The shield is supported by two leopards and surrounded by inscriptions that include Somali Republic, 2016, and the face value of the individual coin.


The reverse face of 2016 PRoof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coins includes a unique vision of the African bush elephant. Here, the elephant is shown in the grass near the shore of a body of water. The elephant has its ears fluffed outwards and its trunk raised as its long tusks point outward. The sun rises into the sky in the background as tall trees rise to meet the horizon in the distance. Inscriptions on this face include African Wildlife, Elephant, 1 oz Platinum, and 999,5.


In 2016, the Bavarian State Mint introduced fractional-ounce silver to the program, as well as 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver. The gold series gained more fractional-ounce coins to include a new 1/50 oz gold coin. Additionally, the mint added a 1 oz platinum coin with this commemorative proof set celebrating the debut with fractional-ounce platinum coins available.
