    One of the most popular coin programs on the market is the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin. While this program has a history dating back prior to 2000, it’s still a long and confusing history about how these coins came to be. Learn more about Somalia Elephant Silver Coins, right here at Provident Metals.

    Series Background

    The overall series debuted in 1999 with the backing of Zambia. These coins are struck by the Bavarian State Mint and are technically a part of the African Wildlife Series. However, elephants are the only animals to ever be featured. Zambia issued these coins until 2003. Beginning in 2004, these coins started to be backed by Somalia.

    While these Silver Coins have had the backing of Somalia since 2004, the Somali Republic has never acknowledged that the nation does indeed support these coins.

    These coins are similar to Perth Mint coin programs, and the Chinese Panda Silver Coin series, in that the reverse image changes with each new year of issue.

    These coins were originally issued as a 1 Troy oz coin with a purity of .999 silver and a face value of 1,000 shillings. Beginning in 2007, the face value was adjusted to just 100 shillings. In 2016, the purity was upped to .9999 pure silver.

    Coins are now available in the following sizes:

    • 1/10 Troy oz: 10 Somali Shillings
    • 1/4 Troy oz: 25 Somali Shillings
    • 1/2 Troy oz: 50 Somali Shillings
    • 1 Troy oz: 100 Somali Shillings
    • 2 Troy oz: 200 Somali Shillings
    • 5 Troy oz: 500 Somali Shillings
    • 10 Troy oz: 1,000 Somali Shillings
    • 1 Kilo: 2,000 Somali Shillings

    Packaging Options

    The standard 1 oz BU coin is available in protective plastic flips, tubes of 20 coins, or Monster Boxes of 500 coins. Larger BU sizes are available in capsules. Proof coins come in display boxes.

    This series does offer other unique sets and packaging options, such as the following:

    • 7-Coin Collection: This collection, released in 2024, has a limited release of just 300 coins. Every coin, but the 1 Kilogram weight, is featured in BU condition. The total weight of the set is 18.85 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver.
    • African Wildlife Prestige Proof Set: This 2022 release has a limited mintage of 2,000. It features four proof coins from the 2022 release. This includes the 2 oz, 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz coins.
    • Baby Boy/ Girl: 1/10 oz coins can come in themed presentation cards to celebrate a new baby girl or boy.
    • Black and White Set/ Day and Night Set: These unique sets for the 2024 release are a great addition to any collection. The Day and Night Set features two colorized coins, one with the elephants out in the daytime, and one at nighttime. The Black and White Set are BU coins with one showcasing the black elephants on a white background, and the other vice versa.

    Unique Strikes of the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin

    There are many unique strikes of the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin other than just the BU coins. Some of the more popular strikes include the following:

    • Colorized: These colorized coins have a colorized lacquer applied to the reverse, giving them a colorful reverse design.
    • Gilded: These gilded coins have a thin layer of 24-karat gold on the reverse.
    • Proof: These proof coins are struck multiple times, giving the background a mirrored look.
