On the obverse of the Silver Congo Silverback Gorilla coin is the close-up image of a gorilla’s face. The haunting eyes and glaring image of the Gorilla are surrounded by the engravings of “Congo Silverback Gorilla” above the design and “2016 1 oz 999 Silver” below. The gorilla species live in tropical and subtropical forests in Africa, with the eastern lowland subspecies of gorillas occupying the Democratic Republic of Congo near its border with Rwanda.

The reverse of each coin includes the image of the nation’s coat of arms. This coat of arms features a heraldic lion on the nation’s shield, with a crown atop the shield and two elephants on either side of the shield. A ribbon below the shield features the national motto of “Unite, Travail, Progres.”
