Product Details

The 2014 Somali 1 oz Gilded Silver Elephant coin contains one troy ounce of 0.999 fine silver. It measures 39 mm in diameter, is 3 mm thick, and weighs 31.103 grams. It is legal tender in Somalia, carrying a value of 100 schillings. This gold-plated coin has very low mintage, with only 3000 pieces produced.

On the obverse, a family of African elephants is shown standing in the moonlit the plains of the Serengeti. The baby elephant hides behind its mother's legs in the distance. The three elephants are gilded in spectacular 24-karat gold. The phrase “AFRICAN WILDLIFE” and the word “ELEPHANT” are inscribed around the rim, along with the weight and purity, “1 oz Ag 999.” The reverse features the Coat of Arms of Somalia, abutted by the year 2014. Along the beautifully beaded rim, “SOMALI REPUBLIC” appears above the coat of arms, and the denomination “100 SCHILLINGS” is below.

The coin was struck at the Das Bayerisches Hauptmunzamt Mint (the Bavarian State Mint) in Munich, Germany. Incredibly, this mint has been in use since 1158. Beginning in 2004, Somalian Silver Elephant coins have been minted as part of the Bavarian State Mint's African Wildlife series in honor of the awe-inspiring African elephant, the world's largest terrestrial creature. This coin's considerable size, weight, and thickness are a fitting homage to the African elephant's remarkable girth.

Curious about how a bank wire transaction works?

Orders totaling $2000 or more qualify for payment by bank wire. To pay by bank wire, a temporary hold of 5% of the purchase price will be placed on the debit or credit card supplied at check out (10% for international customers). Bank wire instructions will be emailed once the hold has been authorized.

Bank wires for the full amount must be initiated by the end of the next business day. Once the wire payment is received, Gainesville Coins will release the hold of the 5% authorization fee.
