While this release in the series is known as the Silver Congo Whale, the term whale is a broad one that refers to a widely distributed, diverse group of marine mammals. For centuries, humanity viewed whales as fish before gaining the scientific insight to reclassify the animals as mammals.

In fact, the term whale refers to an order within Cetacea that excludes dolphins and porpoises. The closest living mammal to whales is actually the hippopotamus, with the two species diverging from one another roughly 40 million years ago. Whales can range in size from a length of just 8.5 feet and a weight of 298 pounds up to a length of 98 feet and a weight of 210 short tons, or roughly 400,000 pounds.

The obverse design of 2020 1 oz Silver Congo Whale Coins depicts the national coat of arms for the Democratic Republic of Congo. The national seal features a leopard’s head in front-facing relief with its powerful teeth exposed. The leopard head is flanked immediately by an elephant tusk on the left and a spear on the right. Below this, there is a banner that sweeps along a rock base that bears the national motto for the country.

On the reverse field of the 2020 Silver Congo Whale Coin is an image of a whale emerging from beneath the waves. The whale shown here is a blue whale, the largest animal on the planet today. Blue whales consist of several subspecies, with the Antarctic blue whale being the largest among them. In keeping with a wildlife theme, the maximum weight of roughly 400,000 pounds a blue whale can reach is equivalent to roughly 33 African bush elephants.

These 2020 1 oz Silver Congo Whales are available to you with individual plastic capsules housing the coins. All coins listed here are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

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.
