African bush elephants are one of two subspecies of African elephants still alive today on the African continent. Although the two are believed to have diverged genetically as recently as 2.6 million years ago, it is believed that the two may have shared genes and co-mingled in the savanna-forest convergence zones on the continent in ancient times. In 21 different locations on the continent, indications of hybrids between the two have been found.


For the obverse of 2020 Somalia Elephant Gold Coins, there is the Somali coat of arms. The seal includes a crowned shield in the center with a background field of horizontal lines with a single star. There is a leopard on either side of the shield to support it and fern leaves crossing with spears below.


In the reverse design, 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/2 oz Gold Coins feature the image of two adult African bush elephants. The duo looks inward toward one another and both have long tusks. The growth of the tusks on an African elephant is indicative of the age of the creature, with long tusks indicating a long lifespan.


The African Wildlife Series was introduced in 1999 by the Bavarian State Mint as the Zambian Elephant Series. The collection originally featured only 1 oz coins in silver and gold. Today, the Somalia Elephant Series features fractional weights in both metals, several weights above 1 oz in silver, and a platinum coin. The fractional-gold coins go down as small as 1/25 and 1/50 oz gold.


Your 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/2 oz Gold Coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual specimens ship inside of protective plastic capsules while multiples of 20 are available in mint tubes. Please contact Provident Metals with any questions.
