Elephants are the largest existing land animals and have roamed the Earth for thousands of years, sharing a collective memory and attracting the fascination of multiple cultures and societies, symbolizing wisdom and intelligence. There are three recognized living species of elephants: the African forest elephant, the African bush elephant (featured in this coin) and the Asian elephant.

The reverse design depicts a right profile relief of a majestic African bush elephant feeding from a tree branch under the sunlight in its natural forested environment.

The obverse side of these coins features the intricate Somali coat of arms, which depicts two leopards standing on spears holding a crowned shield with a centred single star against horizontal lines.

These coins come in brilliant uncirculated condition.


The Elephant Collection is a part of the African Wildlife series that celebrates the African bush elephant. The collection started in 1999 with coins initially minted for Zambia. The first Somalian Elephant gold coin was released in 2004. The series became highly popular with investors and collectors alike.


One of the most traditional companies in Germany, and the oldest in the city of Munich, the Bavarian State Mint has over 850 years of experience in precious metals, numismatic and coinage.
