Gilded coins are unique because they contain both gold and silver. On these coins, the elephant design includes a thin layer of 24-karat gold to create stunning contrast. Due to how beautiful these coins are, they are highly desired by collectors.


On the obverse face of these coins, you will see the image of an elephants head covered with 24-karat gold. The elephant is the largest land mammal in the world, and the design on this coin showcases the creature in all of its glory.


The reverse image is the coat of arms for the country of Somalia. In the image, you will see two leopards on either side of the national shield. The leopards stand atop crossed spears, and fern leaves and a ribbon are also featured in the design.


The Silver Elephant coins have been produced for the country of Somalia since 2004. Each year, the production numbers increase. In 2004, there were only 5,000 coins released. Now, higher mintage figures are available due to the incredible demand.

These coins are minted by the Bavarian State Mint, which is one of the oldest mints in Germany. The mint is owned and operated by the government of the Free State of Bavaria. The mint has created all of the Silver Elephant Coins back to 1999 when they were minted for Zambia.
