2017 Silver & Gold 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. 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 changes annually but always features an illustration of a majestic elephant in its natural habitat. The 2017 Somalian Elephants feature a majestic elephant with its trunk in the air as it walks across the Serengeti. In the background is a native grass hut next to a coconut tree with a glimpse of the sun rising above.
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.
