The silverback gorilla is depicted displaying its power on the obverse of the 2017 Congo Silverback Gorilla 1 oz Silver Coin. The silverback gorilla is not a species of gorilla, but rather refers to the alpha male in the family troop. The silverback is so-named for the streak of silver fur that runs down the back. The silverback makes all decisions for the family troop, from its feeding and sleeping grounds to defending the troop from threats.


The Republic of Congo seal is depicted on the reverse side of 2017 Congo Silverback Gorilla 1 oz Silver Coins. The seal includes a crowned shield that has a rampant lion on its surface and the support of massive elephants on either side. The nation of issue, national motto, and face value of the coin are all inscribed on this side.


Congo Silverback Gorilla coins are issued annually by the Scottsdale Mint dating to the 2015 debut. Over the course of time, the series has expanded to feature additional options. For example, the 2017 release of the coins was particularly robust with these 1 oz silver proof-like coins accompanied by 1 oz silver bullion and 1 oz colorized silver options with the same designs.
