2016 Gold and Silver Somalian Elephants - The Somalian Elephant Coins are one of the most fascinating coins in the African Wildlife Coin Series, which commemorates the characteristic fauna of Africa. Minted by the Das Bayerisches Hauptmünzamt Mint in Munich, Germany, Silver Elephant coins were first issued in 1999. Commissioned by Zambia until 2004, when the country of issue changed to Somalia, the German-manufactured 1 oz Silver Elephant Coin attracts attention from coin collectors all over the world.
Besides its place of manufacture, another of the Gold and Silver coins' desirable attributes is its striking design. Celebrating the beauty of the animal kingdom, the Somalian Elephant Coins portray one of the largest mammals found on the African plains: the elephant. Unlike the obverse, the reverse of the Somalian Elephant Coins change annually but always feature an illustration of a majestic elephant in its natural habitat. The 2016 Somalian Elephants feature a majestic elephant with its ears pulled forward as it shouts across the grassy savannah.
