The African Lion is fondly referred to as the “King of the Jungle.” Although this title is known to children and adults alike, it isn’t exactly the most accurate in the world. Lions are the second largest cats in the animal kingdom behind the tiger. More importantly, lions do not typically live in or near the jungles of Africa, instead inhabiting the savannas and open plains.

Silver Congo African Lion Coins debuted in 2015 with just a 1 oz weight in both bullion, proof, and gilded finishes. For 2016, the Silver Congo African Lion coin program is expanding with the addition of three heavyweight coins. In addition to the 2016 5 oz Silver Congo African Lion coin, the program will feature a 10 oz and 1 Kilogram coin.

On the obverse of each coin you’ll find the image of a grouping of African lions. While the original 1 oz. coin design is revived on these larger coins, you’ll also find that the images have been enhanced. For this coin, the wider field allows for the addition of a second female lion accompanying the male and female pair featured in the initial 1 oz. release.

The reverse of the 2016 5 oz Silver Congo African Lion coin bears the official crest of the Republic of Congo. The national shield features a heraldic lion and is framed on either side by the heads of elephants. Engravings include the nation of issue and the face value of the coins.

These 2016 5 oz Silver Congo African Lion coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated conditions. A BU specimen bears no signs of wear and tear, although you will often find minor detracting flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks.
