Did you know that adult male African elephants have larger and heavier tusks compared to their female counterparts? These tusks can grow up to an astonishing 10 feet (3 meters) in length and are actually elongated incisor teeth. Male African bush elephants are the largest land animals on Earth, reaching heights of 10 to 13 feet at the shoulder and weighing between 5,000 to 14,000 pounds.


The obverse of these exquisite 2024 Somalia Elephant 1/2 oz Gold Coins features the timeless design of the Somali coat of arms at the center of the field. A crowned shield with a background of horizontal lines and a single star is surrounded by leopards on either side, completed with a beaded border.


On the reverse side, the 2024 Somalia Elephant Gold Coin presents a captivating portrayal of African bush elephants in intense combat. This design captures the striking moment of two male bull elephants locked in battle, a behavior commonly seen during the mating season known as musth. During this period, mature male elephants experience heightened aggression and sexual activity due to increased testosterone levels, which can last for several weeks.


Male elephants, like females, use a variety of vocalizations, body language, and infrasound (low-frequency sounds) to communicate with each other. Infrasound can travel over long distances and helps them keep in touch with other elephants over vast territories.


Every 2024 Somalia Elephant 1/2 oz Gold Coin comes meticulously protected in a plastic capsule, preserving its stunning BU condition. Among the fractional-ounce coins in the series, this 1/2 oz gold coin stands as the largest, adding significant value to your investment portfolio.
