Silver coins featuring African animals have become quite popular among collectors in recent years. This has led to the creation of a number of products, one of the most prominent of which is the Congo Silver Coins Series.
History of the Congo Silver Coin
For many years, the Krugerrand of South Africa was the continent’s most popular coin. It was the first of its kind when first introduced in 1967, and for many years it was the sole coin minted throughout the continent. This all changed in 1999 with the introduction of the Wildlife Series. These coins were issued to Zambia and Somalia, and laid the groundwork for the Congo Silver Coins, which were introduced in 2015.
There are two types of Congo Silver Coins. The first features the African Lion, and is 1 oz in size. No more than 50,000 were minted, with most being in a condition which is classified as brilliant uncirculated. The second type of Congo Silver Coin features the Silverback Gorilla. This coin features a finish which is proof-like, and has become very popular in its own right.
