African Elephants first appeared on the African Wildlife coin series in 1999 for the nation of Zambia. In 2004, the nation of issue was switched to the country of Somalia, which is located along the Horn of Africa. Since that time, the coin has been released on behalf of Somalia with new designs annually on the obverse, and the coat of arms on the reverse.
The African Elephant is the worlds largest land mammal. For decades, elephants were hunted to the brink of extinction, due in large part to the value of the ivory in their tusks. Today, efforts are underway to protect the elephant, and the African Wildlife Series calls attention to those efforts by featuring the massive beasts on the obverse.
On the obverse side of the 2016 1 oz Somalia Silver Elephant is the latest imagery of the African Elephant in the series. Engravings include the words African Wildlife, Elephant, and the coins weight, metal content, and purity.
The reverse side always features the coat of arms for the nation of Somalia. A pair of leopards are hold up a heraldic shield, which features a background of horizontal lines with a single star in the center. The coins year of minting is split with two digits on either side of the shield, the words Somali Republic are engraved above, and the face value is featured below.

Each 2016 2 oz Republic of Chad Egyptian Relic Series Horus Silver coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice the presence of minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process.
The release of these Egyptian Relic Series Horus Silver coins follows the release of a 5 oz coin for the Republic of Chad earlier this year in the same series. These brilliant coins feature imagery from Ancient Egypt that appears to have leapt right off the walls of a forbidden tomb or pyramid.
Each coin in this collection is rimless, and has a delicately designed finished appearance. If you look closely at the rimless edges of the coin you will notice small lines running along the edge of the coin, almost as if the silver coin itself was drilled out of the side of a wall with a primitive drilling tool.
On the obverse of the 2016 2 oz Republic of Chad Egyptian Relic Series Horus Silver Coin you will find a depiction of Horus, who was known to the Egyptians as the god of the sky and kingship.
