Fearsome and majestic, the Congo's Silverback Gorilla is brought to life for the very first time by Scottsdale Mint in partnership with the Republic of the Congo as legal tender in the 2016 1 oz Congo Silverback Gorilla silver coin.
In this, the inaugural year of an annual program brought to you by Scottsdale Mint, the complete mintage of the 1 oz Congo Silverback Gorilla 2015 coin is limited to only 50,000 pieces.
Each coin carefully receives a proof-like strike and is placed in an airtight hard plastic capsule, then shipped direct to you in the exact condition it left the mint!
