JM Bullion and Emporium Hamburg to Launch 2017 Somali Silver Elephant Coin

JM Bullion is proud to be the exclusive home for the launch of the 2017 Somalian Silver Elephant 1 oz. and 1 Kilo coins. These popular annual coin releases are a must-have for both investors and collectors, and the 2017 Somalian Elephant Series is poised to be the best release yet.

2017 1 oz. Somalian Silver Elephant In the 13 years since its 2004 introduction, the Somalian Silver Elephant coin has grown from a one-weight bullion and proof series with very low mintages to become a powerhouse in the industry that commands attention with each new release. From 2004 to 2008, the coins were restricted to a mintage of just 5,000 coins annually.

Beginning in 2009, restrictions on mintage were removed and the coin was struck at higher levels to meet the rising demand for gold and silver. This continues today, as the Somalian Elephant Series not only expands its mintage, but also diversifies its lineup to meet the demands of any numismatist.

JM Bullion is proud to announce their partnership as the exclusive launch platform for the 2017 1 oz. and 2017 1 Kilo Somalian Silver Elephants. From the release date, JM’s online catalog will feature the 2017 1 oz. Somalian Silver Elephant for sale in individual flips, mint tubes of 20 coins, or sealed boxes of 500 coins. The 2017 1 Kilo Somalian Silver Elephant is available in individual capsules or sealed boxes of 10.

2017 1 oz. Somalian Silver Elephant The 2017 release is a big year for the Somalian Elephant program as a whole, and JM Bullion has you covered. This marks the first year the Somalian Silver Elephant is available in fractional weights, with 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., and ½ oz. specimens added, and it is also the first year for 2 oz., 5 oz., and 10 oz. silver coins.

On top of that, JM Bullion will carry the full lineup of 2017 Gold Elephants, which itself includes new ¼ oz. and ½ oz. gold coins in a series that already features ½ Gram, 1/50 oz., 1/25 oz., 1/10 oz., 1 oz., and 5 oz. options.

Of course, there’s a new Somalian Elephant Series design for 2017, in keeping with the history of the series as a whole. While the reverse design always changes, the theme remains focused on the African elephant, the planet’s largest land mammal. For the 2017 Somalian Elephant, you’ll find a large bull elephant on the obverse face with a hut and small cluster of palm trees in the background.

Engravings on the obverse include “African Wildlife,” “Elephant,” and the coin’s weight, metal content, and purity. The reverse of all Somalian Elephant Coins continues to feature the coat of arms for the Republic of Somalia. Engravings here read “Somali Republic,” “2017,” and the individual face value of the coins in Somali Shillings.

Whether you’re interested in investment-grade bullion or looking to add to an already impressive collection, JM Bullion’s online catalog of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium coins, bars, and rounds is available to you 24/7 at
