Why purchase this 3 oz Silver Proof 2017 Niger Mali Congo Benin Ivory Coast Africa United?

This Silver Proof 2017 Niger Mali Congo Benin Ivory Coast 3 oz Africa United has broad appeal not only because of its powerful design but also because it is the first coin that is legal tender in all five of these countries. Accordingly, the issue stands for peacefulness and cooperation among nations. Only 5,000 pieces were issued, all struck from .999 fine silver.

Powerful lion design

The obverse of this coin is unique because of the joint project. Rather than having a single design or set of inscriptions, the obverse features five circles, each bearing the obverse that appears on issues of the respective nations. Inscriptions in these areas include the name of the country and the face value of the coin.

On the reverse is a closeup view of a lion at rest. The image shows the creature's strength and confidence against a backdrop of a mountain. Inscribed at the top are the words "AFRICA UNITED," while inscriptions of the weight, purity, and date of the coin are at the bottom.

Flawless Prooflike 70 Early Releases

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in perfect condition by giving it their highest grade, Prooflike 70. "Prooflike" is a term that is used for business strikes that have deeply mirrored fields.
