Why purchase this Silver 2018 Somalia Elephant?
Those who are drawn by the allure of African wildlife will love this 2018 Somalian Silver Elephant. The coin is also a great choice for bullion collectors who are looking for something aside from the best-known annual issues, such as the Silver Eagle, Maple Leaf and Philharmonic. This piece was struck from .9999 fine silver at the Bavarian State Mint, one of the best-reputed mints in Europe. As with other Elephant issues, its design is unique to 2018.
Exotic Elephant Design
The obverse of this coin bears the issuing country's coat of arms. A pair of leopards rampant support a shield that, like the Somali flag, bears a single star. Below is a pair of crossed lances that are wrapped in a ribbon, as well as two crossed palm fronds. Inscriptions include "SOMALI REPUBLIC," "100 SHILLINGS" and "2018," the last of which is split by the arms.
On the reverse, an elephant is shown at an angle. The massive creature has its trunk raised such that it passes through the circular frame, as its tusks do below. The savanna in the background has a singular leafless tree from which two birds have just taken flight. "AFRICAN WILDLIFE" and "ELEPHANT" join "1 OZ AG 999.9" on the rim.
