Within the genus ‘gorilla,’ two species are recognized: the Eastern and the Western. The mountain gorilla is a subspecies of the Eastern Gorilla and consists of two populations. One is located in a range of national parks and the mountains of central and eastern Africa. The other population can be found in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park of Uganda. Since 2018, the mountain gorilla’s conservation status has been listed Endangered, with an overall population of just over 1000.
The obverse of 2023 1 oz Mountain Gorilla Silver Coins contains the Emblem of Rwanda. Adopted in 2001, this national logo includes a coffee branch, sorghum stem, and woven basket mounted on a cogwheel. You will also see a pair of traditional Rwandan shields on either side of this imagery.
On the reverse of 2023 1 oz Rwandan Silver Coins, you will see a family of mountain gorillas. This group includes two adult gorillas along with a child. Above them, you will see the 15th-anniversary logo. Also featured in the design is a motif of the African continent.
Each 2023 1 oz Rwandan Mountain Gorilla Coin was struck in .999 pure silver at B.H. Mayer Mint. The coins were produced on behalf of the Republic of Rwanda, where they are considered legal tender.
