The African lion is one of the most iconic species from the continent, behind only the African elephant in terms of popularity and visibility on the global stage. One of the newest coin series from the African continent is the Silver Congo Series, an ongoing series in its second release year. Right now, the 2016 1 oz Silver Congo African Lion coin is available on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Second release of the Silver African Lion coin.
  • Arrives in a protective plastic slab.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Bears a face value of 5,000 Francs that is considered legal tender in Congo.
  • Issued a grade of Mint State 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Features the latest African Lion design.
  • Privately minted by Sunshine Minting in the United States.

The first African Lion Series coin was introduced in 2015 as a coin issued for the nation of Burundi. After just one year though, the coin’s nation of issue has shifted to the Republic of Congo. This is not unheard of, as the Silver Somalian Elephant was first issued for Zambia from 1999 to 2003.

Each of the 2016 1 oz Silver Congo African Lion coins in this listing earned a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster. You’ll find no detracting flaws on the surface of this coin either.

On the obverse is the latest African Lion design to feature on the coin. In keeping with the previous design theme, a male and female lion from a pride are featured. This year’s design shows the pair walking the Savannah as they stalk prey in the distance. Instead of the text block used on the 2015 coin, the words “African Lion” are now engraved along the outer edge of the design field to intrude less on the design set.

The reverse face of the Silver Congo African Lion bears the coat of arms for the Republic of Congo. In addition to the seal, engravings include the French-language name of the nation as “Republique du Congo,” and the coin’s year of issue, face value, weight, purity, and metal content.

Each of these coins was minted by the Sunshine Minting company of Couer d’Alene, Idaho. The privately-owned company struck just 50,000 of these coins in total for 2016.

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.
