Somalia Elephant bullion coins are available from the Bavarian State Mint on an annual basis in gold, silver, and platinum. As of 2016, there are a number of different weights available in this impressive series. On top of that variety, the coins also have a new reverse image of the African bush elephant every year to enhance collectability. Provident Metals now offers the 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Gold Coin for purchase online.
The African Wildlife Series not only offers beautiful new designs each year, but its popularity helps keep the African elephant in the minds of humanity as the creatures are threatened with extinction. In terms of conservation status, the African elephant is considered vulnerable. This puts it within the threatened range, but not on the cusp of extinction. African elephant numbers in the wild have fallen in recent decades as habitat loss and fragmentation, combined with poachers seeking ivory, cut into the number of living African elephants.
On the obverse, 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Gold Coins feature the coat of arms of the Somali Republic. The design includes a crowned shield in the center supported by leopards on either side of the shield. Two fern leaves and spears cross below the shield. On the surface of the shield, you will find a single star set against a background of horizontal lines. The use of the star reflects the national flag design that uses a blue field with a single white star.
The reverse of 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Gold Coins bears the image of two adult African bush elephants, the largest land mammals in the world. The two elephants are depicted in side-profile relief looking in toward one another. The elephants both have long tusks, a sign of their advanced age. In the distant background, Africas highest peak at Mount Kilimanjaro rises toward the sky.
Somalia Elephant coins began as the Zambian Elephant in 1999. From 1999 to 2003, the Bavarian State Mint issued the coins for Zambia before switching to Somalia in 2004. Throughout the course of its history, including the switch in issuing nations, the series has offered new designs of the African elephant each year.
Your 2020 Somalia Elephant 1/4 oz Gold Coin will arrive either inside of a protective plastic flip or in a mint tube of 20 coins for multiples. All coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
