The Somalia Elephant Series is part of the larger African Wildlife coin series. The series was originally produced for the country of Zambia from 1999 to 2003. The first coins issued under the country of Somalia were minted for 2004. At first, the series only offered silver coins. Eventually, gold coins were added but mintage numbers were low.


On the obverse of each 2018 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Gold Coin is the newest design in the series. On these coins, youll see a massive elephant reaching toward the edge of the coin with its trunk.


The reverse side of all Somalia Elephant coins bears the image of the Somalian coat of arms. The coat of arms is a crowned shield with a background of horizontal lines. In the center, there is a single star. On either side of the shield is a leopard holding it up while standing on crossed spears wrapped with a ribbon.


The Bavarian Mint first opened in the 12th century as a silver refinery. Since then, it has served as a major German mint. Now, it is state-owned by Bavaria and is located in Munich. The popularity of this coin series has put the Bavarian Mint on the map as a series bullion coin producer in Europe.
