The mighty Gigantopithecus could stand as tall as ten feet, and the 2022 Silver Congo Gigantopithecus Coin captures a majestic reconstruction in pure silver of what these giant apes might well have looked like. The coin’s brilliant uncirculated finish preserves an original-mint luster, and Silver.com ships it to you fully insured in a protective plastic capsule. Order early to get in on the limited worldwide supply of these beautiful collectibles.

The largest ape species ever known to exist weighed as much as 1,100 pounds and flourished in tropical and subtropical forest habitats for six to nine million years, finally dying out some three hundred thousand years ago when a shifting climate caused its preferred habitats to vanish. Though long extinct, Gigantopithecus still exerted a powerful influence on modern humanity: its might bones stimulated the early development of the science of paleontology and continue to drive new discoveries.

On the obverse side of the coin is the Congo’s coat of arms, complete with the three-word motto “Justice,” “Paix,” “Travail.” It’s joined by the inscriptions “Republique Democratique du Congo,” “20 Francs,” and “1 oz Ag .999.”

A reconstruction of Gigantopithecus in the forest environments that helped it thrive appears on the reverse, along with inscriptions of its name and extant timespan and the issuing year “2022.” Around the rim is an inscribed timeline of prehistoric epochs and the title inscription “Prehistoric Life.”
