Since the 1999 debut of the African Wildlife Series, the African bush elephant has been the primary feature of the series. The African bush elephant is the largest living land mammal in the world today. There are two species of elephants: African and Asian. The African elephant is split between the bush elephant and the forest elephant, with the forest elephant the third-largest land mammal in the world and the Asian elephant the second-largest land mammal.
On the obverse side of 2022 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of the Somali coat of arms. The national seal consists of a crowned shield with a single star at the center and horizontal lines in the background field. The shield is supported by leopards and this field has a beaded border. The inscriptions read SOMALI REPUBLIC, 2022, and 100 SHILLINGS.
The reverse face of the 2022 Proof Somalia Elephant Silver Coin features an image of two elephants. These African bush elephants are part of the family herd. Here, you will see a mother leading its young calf along the savanna, with both elephants in left-profile relief. The inscriptions on this face of the coin read AFRICAN WILDLIFE, ELEPHANT, and 1 OZ AG 999.9.
The African Wildlife Series Elephant coins were first issued in 1999 for Zambia. In 2004, the coins were reissued for Somalia instead. The coins are available annually in BU gold, silver, and platinum options, with collectible silver coins that include proof sets, colorized coins, gilded coins, and these high-relief proofs.
2022 Proof Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins are ultra-high-relief specimens. The coins are encapsulated and held in wooden presentation boxes. The box arrives in an outer shipper and a Certificate of Authenticity included. Ultra-high-relief proofs have greater visual depth with enhanced, raised relief on the designs. The design strikes are frosted with mirrored background fields.
