2016 Congo 1 oz. Proof Silver African Lion 5000 Francs in Gem Proof

The 2016 African Lion coin is an extension of a series that started in 2015 with the limited minting of the Burundi Lion coin. These coins, minted on behalf of the government of the Republic of Congo, are exquisitely designed and manufactured to exacting specifications for the most discerning collector.

Each .999 fine one troy ounce silver coin features the crest of Congo on the obverse side with the French language inscription “Republique du Congo,” the denomination 5000 Francs, the four-digit year date and the weight and fineness of the coin. The reverse design, and the focal point of this coin features a mater pair of lions – the male with his distinctive mane to the right and the female to the left – leading their pride through the savannah plains of Africa, their native habitat.

These proof finish coins are very limited in production to only one thousand coins world wide. Never will these be produced again, so now is your opportunity to take advantage of acquiring one before they disappear!



This 2016 Congo African Lion 1 oz Silver Proof GEM Proof Original Mint Capsule 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!
