On the reverse side of the 2009 1 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coin is the unique design created for coins struck this year. In the image, a bull elephant walks across the grasslands with its trunk raised, trumpeting to announce its presence. In the background, the sun is setting behind distant trees. The obverse side of the coin bears the coat of arms for the Republic of Somalia. The heraldic shield is topped by three spears, with a lone star set in the middle of horizontal lines across the face.
The African Wildlife Series was introduced in 1999 under the authorization of the nation of Zambia. In 2004 it changed hands from Zambia to Somalia but still maintained the same theme. The African bush elephant is one of the largest land creatures in the world and has long been hunted and poached by people around the globe hoping to profit from the sale of its valuable ivory. Thanks to conservation and awareness efforts, the elephant has been rescued from the brink of disaster.
African elephants are separated into two different categories of sub-species. The common bush elephant is the recognizable creature most people see in textbooks, and is the largest land creature. Its cousin the forest elephant is lesser known and has a smaller stature, but still enjoys the title of third largest creature on Earth. The Bavarian State Mint strikes the African Wildlife Coin series for the Republic of Somalia.
