Among the most popular coin collections in the world today are the African Wildlife Series Elephant coins. Introduced in 1999 as the Zambia Elephant, today the series is known as the Somalia Elephant after its 2004 switch. In the nearly two decades since that change, the series has seen its face value adjusted, its silver content increased, and the number of weights offered expanded to attract a wider range of buyers. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2022 Somalia Elephant 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
When the African Wildlife Series Elephant Coins were introduced in 1999, the series was available as the Zambia Elephant collection. The coins were available in 1 oz silver, with 1 oz gold also available. Over time, the Bavarian State Mint expanded to offer a 1 Kilo silver coin. In 2004, the series became the Somalia Elephant collection and would expand further in the decade-plus to come.
