The First Year Ever for a 1 oz. Platinum Somalia Elephant:
2016 marks the very first year of a 1 oz. Platinum Somalian Elephant! The Silver Somalia Elephant coins are released on an annual basis by the Bavarian State Mint, with a brand-new image of the elephant on the obverse each year, but this is the first Platinum coin ever produced. The African elephant is one of the most iconic and well-known species from the African continent, and was a natural choice for a coin program with the title African Wildlife Series.
* Certified NGC PL70 First Releases.
* First year ever for a Platinum Elephant.
* Struck from 1 oz. of 99.95% pure Proof Platinum.
* The 2016 Platinum Elephant has a limited mintage of only 1,000!
The obverse of the coin features an image of an adult elephant at the side of a creek or lake, with its trunk raised as it bellows out a call. “African Wildlife” and the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content are featured in engravings on this side.
The reverse features the coat of arms for the nation of Somalia. Engravings include “Somali Republic,” the coin’s year of issue, and the face value of the coin. These 2016 Platinum Somalian Elephants are unique in that they are the first in the series to ever be struck in pure Platinum!
