The Somalia Elephant 1 oz Gold Coin is issued by the Republic of Somalia. The gold series was first introduced in 2010 and followed the highly successful silver edition which was first released in 2004. The coins are produced by the Bavarian State Mint, on behalf of the Republic of Somalia.  

The motifs are identical in both versions, gold and silver. In 2017, the gold coin series expanded its sizes to include ½ oz, ¼ oz, 1/10 oz, 1/25 oz, 1/50 oz and ½ gram. The series now offers investors and collectors one of the largest selections of fractional weights on the market today.  

All of the 2017 Somalia Elephant Gold coins have a fineness of 999.9/1000 gold.


The motif of the Somalia Elephant 1 ounce gold coin 2017 shows a full-grown elephant in the savannah. The elephant stands behind tall grass. In the background is a mud hut in front of a palm tree, with the sun rising. The tail and the left rear leg of the elephant protrude into the edge of the coin and make the motif appear livelier. The inscriptions around the outer edge are the same as the 2016 edition and show "AFRICAN WILDLIFE" "ELEPHANT" and "1 oz Au 999.9".

The value page shows the coat of arms of Somalia. The country of origin, the year of issue and the face value are marked on the outer margin and read "SOMALIA REPUBLIC", "20" on the left and "17" on the right of the coat of arms and the face value of "1,000 SHILLINGS". There is also a decorative circle of dots surrounding the outer edge.
