The African Wildlife Series African Elephant coins feature fresh images on the reverse field each year. The animal at the center of the designs each year is the African elephant. More specifically, the species featured on this side is the African bush elephant, the largest land mammal alive today. Now, Provident Metals offers you the chance to purchase 2020 Somalia Elephant 1 Kilo Silver Coins.
African bush elephants are closely related to their African forest elephant cousins, as well as the Asian elephant and the ancient Woolly Mammoth. DNA sequencing has shown that African bush and forest elephants began to diverge from one another between 2.6 and 5.6 million years ago. The African elephant species collectively diverged from the Asian elephant and Woolly Mammoth between 2.5 and 5.4 million years ago.
In the obverse design field of the 2020 Somalia Elephant 1 Kilo Silver Coin, you will find the official coat of arms for the Somali Republic. The design includes a crowned shield supported on either side by a leopard. There are crossed fern leaves and spears below the shield. The face of the shield includes a single star set on a background of horizontal lines.
For the reverse of 2020 Somalia Elephant 1 Kilo Silver coins, the Bavarian State Mint focuses on a design including two adult elephants. The pair are viewed in side profile portrait with only the heads visible in the design field. The elephants look inward toward one another with the towering peak of Mount Kilimanjaro visible between the two creatures in the distance.
Somalia Elephant silver coins were originally available only in 1 oz silver with .999 pure silver content and annual mintage caps. When the Great Recession set in, the demand for silver resulted in the end of mintage caps in this series. In 2016, the Bavarian State Mint responded to the continued popularity of the Somalia Elephant silver series with increased .9999 pure silver content and new weights. Among those new weights, the 1 kilo silver coin now stands as the largest coin in the collection.
All 2020 Somalia Elephant 1 Kilo Silver Coins are available to you with a protective plastic capsule from the mint and come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Provident Metals encourages you to call us with any questions at 800-313-3315. You can also chat with us live online or email us
