The Somalia Elephant Series of silver and gold bullion coins underwent a massive transition in 2016. Prior to that year, the coins had only been available in 1 oz silver with .999 pure content. In 2016, the Bavarian State Mint boosted the metal content of the coins to .9999 fineness and added fractional-ounce coins to the series for the first time ever. Included in that addition was the 1/4 oz silver coin.


The African bush elephant is the largest terrestrial land mammal alive today and it features on the obverse of the 2017 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Silver Coin. This years design of the bush elephant captures the massive creature in a field near a small hut as it raises its trunk up in the air. Inscriptions on this face of the coin read African Wildlife, Elephant, and 1/4 oz Ag 9999.


Somalias coat of arms is found on the reverse of the 2017 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Silver Coin. The design includes a crowned shield with a field of horizontal lines and a single star in the center. The shield is supported by a leopard on either side with a pair of crossed fern leaves and spears below it. The inscriptions you will find on this side include Somali Republic, 2017, and 25 Shillings.


The Somalia Elephant Silver Coin series originated as the Zambian Elephant Silver Series in 1999 and was issued on behalf of that nation until 2003. The Bavarian State Mint switched the collection to Somalia starting in 2004 and has continued on to the present day. With new designs each year, the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin has never repeated a design.


2017 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You will receive individual coins inside of protective plastic flips while multiples of 25 are available in mint rolls.
