2016 Congo 1 oz. Proof Silver African Lion 5000 Francs – GEM Proof condition with display box

One of the most recognizable animals in the world, the African Lion graces the design side of this very limited edition proof condition coin minted on behalf of the government of the Republic of Congo.

The African Lion is a very unique animal. It is known to weigh more than any other big cat species except the Siberian Tiger. Their full-grown weight of up to 600 pounds must be fed with frequent hunts. One of the most unique qualities of the African Lion is that it hunts in groups of up to a dozen adults called a ‘pride.’ This helps the individuals catch more food in a more efficient manner, conserving the energy of each individual and making catching food much more likely.

This very limited mintage proof condition coin issue is an exclusive product of Modern Coin Mart and was authorized for issue by the government of the Republic of Congo. Each piece is a full troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and comes in a specially prepared box for storage or display!



This 2016 Congo African Lion 1 oz Silver Proof GEM Proof Display Box is proudly minted by the Sunshine Minting. Sunshine Minting Inc. is one of the most reputable private mints in the United States. It even provides silver planchets to the United States Mint!
