2016 Congo 1 oz. Proof Silver African Lion 5000 Francs | NGC PF69 UC ER

The 2016 African Lion coin is an exclusive release of Modern Coin Mart authorized by the government of the Republic of Congo. They are limited to only one thousand coins world wide, and represent one of the most popular and most recognized mammals on Earth…the African Lion!

This coin was designed for the collector in mind. All the details were incorporated into the design of this coin with exacting detail that is befitting of a low mintage proof special edition coin. The mirror shine fields are the result of specially polished dies that help make all the crisp details of the coin pop out into plain view, adding to the excitement of this scarce issue!

This special proof condition coin was graded proof 69 ultra cameo by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, one of the leading grading services for coins. This grade means that only tiny flaws not discernible to the untrained eye could be found on this coin by a professional grader. The Early Releases designation means that this coin was received by NGC for grading within the first thirty days after the issue’s initial release from the manufacturing mint.

This issue is a timeless collectible that will be offered only until the initial release of one thousand coins is gone. Once they are out of stock, they will never be offered again. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to get in on these quickly!



This 2016 Congo African Lion 1 oz Silver Proof NGC PF69 UC ER (Exclusive African Lion Label) 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!
