In 2017, the Bavarian State Mint continued the release of its Somalia Elephant Platinum Coins. While issuing only a 1 oz platinum bullion coin, the Bavarian State Mint also issues limited mintages of Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coins in collectible sets. In 2016, two different sets were issued with a standard proof and a hologram proof. 2017 saw the second release of the proof set. Provident Metals now has 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coin Sets available to you online.
When you purchase a 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coin Set, you receive a total of four coins from the Bavarian State Mint. The set offers 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz platinum coins. Each one is a proof specimen with frosted designs and mirrored fields. The box holds all four coins in one set and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity inside.
The obverse side of 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coins includes the Somali coat of arms. The national symbol includes a single star on a crowned shield that has a background field of horizontal lines. The inscriptions of Somali Republic, 20 and 16 on either side of the shield, and the face value in Somali Shillings are all marked on this face of the coin.
On the reverse side of 2017 Proof Somalia Elephant Platinum Coins in this set is the unique depiction of the African bush elephant. Used only in 2017, the image features a powerful bush elephant in the foreground raising its trunk above its head with its ears out. In the background, a small traditional hut is found beneath a palm tree. The inscriptions read African Wildlife, Elephant, and the coins weight, purity, and metal content.
2016 introduced a variety of new options for Somalia Elephant Coins. The series gained 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver coins, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz silver coins, a distinctive 1/50 oz gold coin, and the new 1 oz platinum bullion series.
