Despite its massive size and muscular mass, the gorilla is a largely herbivorous ape that lives in the forests of central sub-Saharan Africa. Long believed to be a myth, the massive gorillas exist in two separate species with four distinct subspecies. The western gorilla has subspecies of western lowland gorillas and Cross River gorillas. The eastern gorilla has subspecies of mountain gorillas and eastern lowland gorillas.


A silverback gorilla features in a fifth new design in the 2019 Congo Silverback Gorilla 1 oz Silver Coin. This beast is depicted in an aggressive pose as it exposes its teeth and lets out a roar to warn those who are encroaching on the family troop. Inscriptions on this face are found around the outer rocker and read Congo Silverback Gorilla and 2019 1 oz 999 Silver.


The Republic of Congo seal is depicted on the reverse of the 2019 Congo Silverback Gorilla Silver Coins. The seal features a single rampant lion on a shield that is supported on each side by elephants. There is a beaded border around the design element with inscriptions of Republique du Congo and 5000 Francs CFA engraved just inside of that beaded border.


Most of the gorilla population on the African continent live within the nations of Central-West Africa and into the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. The western lowland species of gorillas live in the Central and West African nations, while eastern lowland gorillas inhabit the DRC, with the mountain gorilla subspecies living in the cloud forests of the Virunga Volcanoes near the border with Rwanda.


These 2019 Congo Silverback Gorilla 1 oz Silver Coins are proof-like specimens in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins have hints of frosted and mirrored elements. Individual coins are housed in capsules with multiples of five coins in sealed skinboards.
