The Somalia Silver Elephant lineup is expanding significantly in 2017. After the Bavarian State Mint added a platinum coin in 2016, it is now adding not only this 2017 1/10 oz Somalia Silver Elephant for the first time ever, but also two other fractional weight coins and three coin weights between 1 oz and 1 Kilo, the only two weights previously available.
On the obverse of all 2017 1/10 oz Somalia Silver Elephant Coins is the latest African elephant design. Surrounded by engravings of the series name, design creature, and the coins weight, metal content, and purity, youll find the image of an elephant on the open plains standing amidst a patch of grass. Visible in the background is a modest hut with a single palm tree rising above it for shade.
The reverse of all Somalia Silver Elephant coins continues to feature the coat of arms for the nation of Somalia. The seal features a heraldic shield set above two crossing spears wrapped in a ribbon. The shield has a single star against a background of horizontal lines, and one leopard on either side holds the shield up.
Germanys Bavarian State Mint is responsible for the production of all 2017 Somalia Silver Elephant coins. Located in Munich, it is a state-owned entity of the Free State of Bavaria.
