2022 1 oz Gold Congo Gorilla Proof Coin

One of the most sought-after gold coins on the market, the Congo Gorilla Series belongs to the Scottsdale Mint’s inventory of products.

Firstly introduced in 2015, the Congo Gorilla Series has annual releases showcasing the Silverback Gorilla in varied positions as its regular motif. The Gorilla is a native wild animal from the African Continent, but unfortunately a rarer specimen. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Silverback Gorilla is endangered.

The high levels of gold content and a minimal number of coins struck make these coins a valuable asset to any investment portfolio diversified with high-quality bullion.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine gold in proof finish;
  • Limited edition of 100 pieces;
  • Made by Scottsdale Mint;
  • Bears legal tender status and the face value of 3000 Francs CFA, backed by Congo;
  • The obverse features the Silverback Gorilla;
  • The reverse displays the Coat of Arms of Congo.

The Design

The obverse features the Silverback Gorilla, which names the coins. Also known as mountain gorillas, they tend to look for higher places to live. This iconic animal is native to many areas of Africa, which includes Congo. 

In the image, the gorilla is in an upstanding position, beating its chest. Triangular patterns arch over the gorilla depiction, while the inscription “CONGO SILVERBACK GORILLA” lies on the bottom rim. The words “ONE OUNCE .9999 GOLD” stand on the left, referring to the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content, while “2022” is on the right.

The reverse showcases the national seal of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The upper rim reads: “REPUBLIQUE DU CONGO,” and the coin’s face value is on the bottom, through “3000 FRANCS CFA.”
