It is framed in the center inset as though looking through a window. Its large trunk hangs down over the rimband, which gives the scene a 3-D effect.
The background displays a single tree and the grassy plains reaching to the distant horizon. Above the elephant’s head, hangs a leafy branch and a bird is depicted suspended in the breeze.

The African Wildlife Elephant series is well established and highly popular worldwide. Its inaugural release was in 1999. Interestingly, the series began under the banner of the South African country, Zambia. Four annual releases were produced bearing the Coat of Arms of Zambia. In 2004, the series was shifted to the Somali Republic, and has continued under the Somali Coat of Arms since. Each year a brand new elephant design is featured on the coin’s reverse.
From the beginning, the series has been produced by one of Germany’s state-owned mints, Bavarian State Mint. The mint is globally recognized for their excellence in quality, which is certainly represented in the African Wildlife Elephant series.
