The obverse feature of the 2023 Somalia Elephant Silver Coin is the Somali coat of arms. This design has featured on the coins each year and includes a crowned shield supported by leopards on either side. The shield features a background of horizontal lines and comes with a single star in the center. Inscriptions read SOMALI REPUBLIC, 2023, and 500 SHILLINGS.


On the reverse side of 2023 Elephant 5 oz Silver Coins is the image of an African bush elephant. This design shows a mature elephant using its long trunk to strip leaves from a tree branch so it can enjoy a meal. The inscriptions on this side include AFRICAN WILDLIFE, ELEPHANT, and 5 OZ AG 999.9.


Available since 2004 in its current iterations, the Somalia Elephant Series expanded significantly after 2016. One of the additions in this period was the 5 oz silver coin, an option that joined the series alongside fractional-ounce silver, 2 oz silver, and 10 oz silver.
