In this largest release in the Silver Congo African Lion Series, an entire pride of lions is featured in the most intricate and enhanced design face of all coins in the program. Building on the male and female of the 1 oz coin, this product includes two additional female lions and two young cubs.
African Lions live in family groups known as prides, which typically include just one adult male and a grouping of females and cubs. When male lions reach maturity they either challenge the alpha male of their pride for dominance or leave the pride to find their own group to join.
Each 2016 1 Kilogram Silver Congo African Lion Coin listed online is available as a Brilliant Uncirculated specimen. These coins feature no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the striking process.
On the obverse of the Silver Congo African Lion coin is the image of the lion pride.
