2016 Congo one ounce silver African Lion graded NGC MS70 Early Releases
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
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.’
This coin is graded a perfect Mint State 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This means that professional graders have examined this coin and have deemed it to be flawless as-struck without noticeable flaws. It was also sent in for grading within the first 30 days after the coin’s initial release from the mint. That’s what the designation “Early Releases” means.
