Lions are often referred to simply as the African Lion, which lumps the numerous subspecies from the continent into one grouping. All lions live as part of a family group known as a pride. There is only one adult male per family pride, with young males eventually leaving the family to find a pride of its own or challenging an older adult male in another pride.
The African Lion is captured brilliantly on all 2016 Congo Silver African Lion Coins, in particular on the 2016 1 Kilo Congo Silver African Lion Coin. The family unit is captured perfectly on this largest coin in the series.
On the obverse of the 2016 1 Kilo Congo Silver African Lion coin you’ll find the image of an entire pride, led in the front by an adult male and a female partner. Included in the background are two additional female members of the pride, as well as two young cubs. In the distant background, the mountain visible in the design of the other smaller weight coins is featured in its full glory on the 1 Kilo coin.
The reverse of the 2016 Congo Silver African Lion coin has the national crest of the Republic of Congo. The crest features a shield in the center that bears the heraldic image of a lion, with two elephant heads on either side to frame the shield itself. Engravings bear the name of the nation and the face value of the coin, as well as its purity, weight, and metal content.
The 2016 1 Kilo Congo Silver African Lion coin in this JM Bullion listing features a Brilliant Uncirculated grade. BU coins have no signs of wear and tear, but can also feature minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the striking process.
