2016 Congo 1 oz. Proof Silver African Lion 5000 Francs | NGC PF70 UC ER

This is the second issue in the exciting and very limited proof African Lion series, which saw its debut with the Burundi issued coin for 2015. The country of issue has changed, but the excitement over the issue remains with this 2016 Republic of Congo issue created exclusively for worldwide distribution by Modern Coin Mart!

The obverse of this 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 side of the coin features a pair of Lions leading their pride (a group of lions) into the hunt for their next meal. The male lion of the pair can easily be distinguished by the long mane, a feature that female lions do not have.

This coin was graded a perfect proof 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. This means the coin was viewed by professional graders who could not find any flaws on the coin and assigned the ultimate, highest grade a coin can receive. Additionally, this coin has also received the Early Releases designation, which means this coin was received for grading by NGC within the first thirty days after the issue’s initial release from the mint.
