Introduced by the Bavarian State Mint as the Zambia Elephant Series, the Somalia Elephant Series has been available to investors since 2004. The program originally featured 1 oz of .999 pure silver and now boasts 1 oz of .9999 pure silver as of 2016. The most notable feature of the series is the use of a new design of the African bush elephant on the reverse side each year. Provident Metals now offers random-year Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins to you for purchase online.
When you purchase the Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins available in this product listing, you will receive 1 oz silver coins from random years of issue in varied conditions. Provident Metals offers the coins inside of protective plastic flips and cannot guarantee which specimen you receive. All coins are chosen at random once your payment has been processed.
Provident Metals selects your coins based on available inventory at the moment your payment is processed. The coins in this listing can have varied conditions, date marks, designs, face values, and purity levels. Please remember that when you buy several coins you could get matching specimens.
The obverse side of Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins includes a depiction of the Somalia coat of arms. The national coat of arms for Somalia features a crowned shield with a background field of horizontal lines and a single star at the center. Leopards support the shield on either side and come with crossed spears and fern leaves. Inscriptions include Somali Republic, individual date marks, and either 1000 Shillings or 100 Shillings depending on the date mark.
On the reverse face of the Somalia Elephant Silver Coin is a design of the African bush elephant. The bush elephant is the largest and heaviest living land mammal. Its image changes each year on the reverse side of these coins and comes with the same inscriptions each year. The inscriptions read African Wildlife, Elephant, and 1 oz Ag 999 or 1 oz Ag 9999.
The African Wildlife Series Silver Elephants debuted for Somalia with 1 oz .999 pure silver. This was the standard from 2004 to 2015, with silver purity increasing to .9999 silver in 2016. Face values in the collection include 1,000 Shillings for coins issued from 2004 to 2006, with the value adjusted to 100 Shillings for all coins from 2007 onward.
