One of the few coins offered on its own is the high-relief version in 1 oz and 1 kilo weights.

The African bush elephant is the largest living terrestrial mammal in the world today. It is one of three species of elephant still alive. All modern elephants are related genetically to the extinct, massive Woolly Mammoth. Of the three remaining species of elephant today, the African bush elephant is the largest, with its close cousin the African forest elephant the second-largest. The Asian elephant is the third-largest.


On the obverse of all 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins is the image of the coat of arms for Somalia. The Somali coat of arms consists of a crowned shield with a field of horizontal lines and a single star in the center. The shield is supported by leopards on either side standing on crossed spears and fern leaves below.


The reverse side of 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins includes the exclusive 2017 design. This year, the African bush elephant is featured in the middle ground of the design field as it stands to raise its trunk in the air. In the background, a traditional hut is constructed in the shade of a nearby tree. The sun rises into the sky in the distant background field.


Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins in this listing are high-relief strikes. A high-relief proof is an impressive visual specimen. Struck multiple times under intense pressure, the result is a coin with a slightly sunken field that allows for the engraved design to gain greater 3D relief and visually stand out from its surroundings with greater depth.


2017 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins in this listing are housed inside of hardwood boxes that have a glass lid and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
