2016 Congo one ounce silver African Lion
The newly released second coin in a series representing one of the largest predators in the world, the African Lion. This artfully designed one ounce silver coin minted with the authority of the government of the Republic of Congo is an exclusive issue by Modern Coin Mart
The African Lion lives up to 15 years in the wild in groups called “prides.” This huge animal hunts, eats, and sleeps in this group unit, which is unusual among big cat species, who normally do these things in smaller family groups, usually in mating pairs. This distinguishes the lion in one of many different ways.
This coin shows a male and female pair leading the way for their pride on the lower plains of the African Savannah, the natural habitat of the African Lion. The male and female genders of this species can easily be distinguished from one another in that the male is usually larger, and has longer hair all the way around the neck, called the ‘mane.’
