The obverse side of 2018 Colorized Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins features the Somali coat of arms.

On the reverse face of the 2018 Colorized Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coin, you will find the depiction of an African bush elephant that is unique to this release. In this years design, the elephant is in the near-foreground of the design field with its face close to the viewer and its tusks and trunk exceeding the central design ring to bleed over into the rim. Inscriptions on that design rim include African Wildlife, Elephant, and 1 oz Ag 9999.

This side of the coin has the colorized lacquer applied to the central design element. The elephant has its trademark gray skin with ivory white tusks. The background field captures a brilliant daytime setting with thin white clouds, rays of sunshine coming from behind the elephants head, and a blue sky.
