The Silver African Lion is one of the newer silver bullion coin programs from the African continent, and like those before it has undergone some significant changes after just one year. Designed to feature new designs on the obverse each year, few predicted a change in the nation of issue of just one year as well. Today, the 2016 1 oz Silver Congo African Lion coin is available on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Second release of the Silver Congo African Lion!
  • Ships to you in a protective plastic slab courtesy of the NGC.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Issued a face value of 5000 Francs by the government of the Republic of Congo.
  • Bears a grade of Mint State 69 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Includes the African Lion design.
  • Struck in the United States at Sunshine Minting.

Silver African Lion coins were originally released in 2015 as coins issued for the nation of Burundi. After just one year, the contract and nation of issue shifted to the Republic of Congo. Some of the design features remain similar, such as the use of a male-female lion pairing on the obverse and a coat of arms on the reverse, but specific features have changed.

On the obverse of this year’s coin you’ll find the pairing of a male and female lion from a pride as they seemingly stalk some prey in the distance. The duo are on foot, with the male leading the way even though females are often left to do the hunting for a pride. Replacing the text block in the middle of the design, “African Lion” is now engraved along the design’s outer edge.

The reverse features the coat of arms for the Republic of Congo, and the coins bear a similar face value of 5000 Francs that is considered legal tender only in the nation of Congo. The coin’s year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content are also included.

Sunshine Minting of Couer d’Alene, Idaho is responsible for the production of these coins. Just 50,000 coins were minted in total this year, making these rare among a small mintage release.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
