When the Bavarian State Mint first issued the gold bullion coins of the African Wildlife Elephant Series, the coins were actually issued on behalf of Zambia. Then known as the Zambia Gold Elephant, the coins were switched to Somalia starting in 2004. Since then, the Somalia Gold Elephant Coin has been available each year with a new reverse design.
All of these 1 oz Somalia Gold Elephant Coins are available to you from random years with a plastic flip for shipping. As mentioned above, the Somalia Gold Elephant Coin has been available in this weight since 2004. As such, this listing offers the potential for coins to come with date marks ranging from 2004 to the present. It is also important to note that each date mark in this series has a different depiction of the African bush elephant on the reverse.
Please note that JM Bullion selects all coins in this listing at random. We are not able to guarantee a specific date mark or accompanying design in advance. All coins are chosen after your payment has been processed and you may end up receiving coins with matching dates and designs when you buy more than one.
