Introducing the captivating 2024 Somalia Elephant 5 oz Silver Coins, now available at Provident Metals as part of the esteemed African Wildlife Series. These coins, originally introduced by the Bavarian State Mint in 1999, beautifully depict the magnificence of African Elephants and have been issued by Somalia since 2004. You have the option to choose from gold or silver, with silver coins available in various sizes, including an impressive 1 kilo coin.


  • Arrives with acrylic capsules!
  • Celebrating the 20th anniversary in the Somalia Silver Elephant Series!
  • Contains 5 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver in BU condition.
  • The face value is 500 Somali Shillings.
  • On the obverse is the Somali coat of arms.
  • The reverse features two African bush elephant bulls fighting.

At Provident Metals, we are thrilled to offer you these exceptional coins, each securely encased in acrylic capsules for preservation. The coins are presented in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, making them a cherished addition to any collection. As the Bavarian State Mint expanded the series in 2016/2017 to include larger silver weights, these coins have become highly sought-after by collectors around the globe.


The 2024 Elephant 5 oz Silver Coin proudly displays the Somali coat of arms on its obverse side, a symbol that has adorned every coin in the series since 2004. The coat of arms features a shield with a crown and a star at its center, set against a backdrop of horizontal lines, with two powerful leopards flanking it. Inscriptions read SOMALI REPUBLIC, 2024, and 500 SHILLINGS.


On the reverse side of the 2024 Somalia Elephant Silver Coin, a captivating new design takes center stage. Witness the raw power of two male elephants engaged in a fierce battle. During mating season, male elephants often engage in such duels to assert dominance and win the favor of female elephants, making this coin a symbol of nature’s strength and beauty. The inscriptions include AFRICAN WILDLIFE, ELEPHANT, and 5 OZ AG 999.9.


During mating seasons, there are instances when a mature male elephant might temporarily integrate into a family herd. The presence of a mature bull in the group is advantageous for the females, as it boosts the chances of successful reproduction. However, this role is not permanent, and the male will eventually move on to other groups or live a solitary existence.
