2013 1 oz High Relief Silver Somalian African Elephant. 999 Pure With Box & COA. This 2013 1 oz High Relief Silver Somalian African Elephant coin from the African Wildlife Coin Series comes in a Wooden Presentation Box, with a Certificate of Authenticity. 999 Pure Silver, this coin appeals to collectors worldwide for its depiction of the elephant, one of the most intriguing animals found in Africa. The elegant design of this High Relief Silver coin, minted at the Bavarian State Mint in Munich, Germany, carries a legal tender in the Republic of Somalia. Somalia, located in the “Horn of Africa”, was an important center for commerce as documented in ancient history. However, when the Somali Civil War broke out in 1991, the government collapsed leaving the residents of Somalia to resort to local forms of conflict resolution. Somalia is still in a state of civil unrest. The Obverse features Somalia’s Coat of Arms: a shield supported by two leopards standing on inter-crossed spears. The centered Coat of Arms separates the legend “2013”, while the rim of the coin reads “SOMALI REPUBLIC” and the coin’s legal tender of “100 SHILLINGS”. The Reverse showcases a family of elephants standing on a bank. They extend their powerful trunks to drink from a pool of water. A large tree is seen in the background implicating the African motif. This High Relief Coin exaggerates the coin’s detail in comparison to its African Wildlife Series counterparts. Included along the coin’s perimeter are inscriptions: “AFRICAN WILDLIFE”, “ELEPHANT” and its weight and purity of “1 oz Ag 999″. Please let me know if you have any questions or need more pictures.
