Introduced in 1999, the African Wildlife Elephant Series started out as a silver and gold bullion series for the nation of Zambia. The Bavarian State Mint issued the coins for Zambia from 1999 to 2003. In 2004, the series took on its modern form as the Somalia Silver Elephant.
For most of its history up to 2016, the series had 1 oz silver coins and 1 oz gold coins as the only options. In 2016, the series moved from .999 pure silver to .9999 pure silver. In 2017, the mint drastically expanded the number of coins available in the silver bullion series with 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz silver coins. These joined the existing 1 oz silver and 1 Kilo silver coins.
For the obverse design of the 2022 Somalia Silver Elephant Coin, the mint features the Somali coat of arms. The national seal features a crowned shield that is flanked by heraldic leopards on either side. The field has a background of horizontal lines with a single star at the center. There are spears and fern leaves beneath the shield.
In the reverse design of 2022 5 oz Silver Elephant Coins, you will find an African bush elephant family. This year’s design shows an adult bush elephant leading its young calf along the savanna. The two elephants are shown in left-profile relief with a small flock of birds overhead and trees on the horizon in the distance.
