First produced in 2004, the 2017 1 oz Somali Silver Elephant is the latest in an annually released series of silver coins. Each Silver Elephant consists of one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver and carries a face value of 100 shillings. While most annual sovereign minted coins carry the same design from year to year, the Silver Elephant gets a new reverse design with each release; yet, it always features at least one African Elephant.
The obverse of the Silver Elephant features the Somalian Coat of Arms, which depicts two leopards on either end of a shield. Underneath, a ribbon is draped over two crossed lances and two crossed palm fronds. Prior to 2004, the coin featured the seal of Zambia. Inscriptions include “SOMALI REPUBLIC,” “2017,” and “100 SHILLINGS.”
The newly designed reverse features an elephant with a raised trunk, walking across the Serengeti. A grass hut and a coconut tree sit in the background, as the sun rises above. Inscriptions include “AFRICAN WILDLIFE,” “ELEPHANT,” and “1 OZ AG 999.9.”
Coins ship in brilliant uncirculated condition. Single coins ship in a plastic flip, quantities of 20 in plastic mint tubes, and quantities of 500 in a strapped monster box.
Silver Elephants are minted at the Bavarian State Mint, which is the oldest company in Munich, Germany. Producing coins as early as 1158, the mint is known for manufacturing high quality products, including collector coins, medals, and seals.
