CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 African Wildlife - Elephant

The Somali Shilling is the official currency of Somalia. Due to inflation though, regular cash circulation in the country is handled not by coins but mostly by banknotes and foreign currency.

The country has also authorised the Bavarian Central Mint to issue bullion coins under its jurisdiction. The African Wildlife Series features a new design every year and has become very popular with collectors and bullion investors worldwide. The coins are in standard bullion sizes, such as two ounces of silver - designated as 2 oz Ag, where Ag is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver.

This coin is part of the African Wildlife bullion coin series by the Bavarian Central Mint, and features the Elephant.
