Located in the mountains of Africa, the silverback gorilla is an imposing presence that can grow up to six feet tall. Subsisting on an herbivorous diet, the silverback will consume everything from roots and herbs to bark and bamboo. While they may be intimidating, the silverback gorilla has a reputation for being rather gentle and reserved. That is, unless they are threatened, in which case the alpha male will stand up straight and pound its chest to ward off enemies.
Each 2022 1 oz Congo Silverback Gorilla Coin in this online JM Bullion listing was struck at Scottsdale Mint and will arrive to you in new condition. Produced in collaboration with the Republic of Congo, these coins are considered legal tender. They will arrive to you either in individual plastic flips, a tube of 20, or a Scottsdale Monster Box of 500 coins.
The obverse of 2022 Congo Silver Silverback Gorilla Coins features the Congolese coat of arms. In this design, we see a pair of elephants supporting a decorative shield. Upon the shield, there is a lion holding a torch, and above it, there is a large crown. Across the coin’s border, there are inscriptions that read Republique du Congo, 500 Francs CFA.
On the reverse side of 2022 1 oz Silver Silverback Gorilla Coins there is a depiction of a silverback gorilla. In this all-new design, the gorilla appears in a forward-facing position from the waist up as it pounds its chest. Whether it is attempting to ward off an enemy or simply announce its authority to its fellow gorillas, this is definitely a creature you do not want to mess with. Inscriptions read Congo Silverback Gorilla, One Ounce .999 Silver, 2022.
