Dunkleosteus went extinct at the end of the Devonian period, along with many other marine and terrestrial species. The cause of this mass extinction is still debated, but it is thought to have been caused by a combination of factors, including climate change and a meteor impact. However, it has come back to life in the precious metals industry in the Prehistoric Life Series. Today, you have the chance to get 2023 Congo Dunkleosteus 1 oz Silver Coin online from Provident Metals.

On the 2023 Dunkleosteus 1 oz Silver Coin, the Congolese coat of arms is featured on the obverse design. The national emblem displays a leopard’s head in front-facing relief, levitating over a slab of rock at the base, flanked by an elephant tusk and a spear. Inscriptions on this side include REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DUE CONGO, 1 OZ AG 999.9, and 20 FRANCS.


Displaying the image of Dunkleosteus, the reverse design element of the 2023 Congo Dunkleosteus 1 oz Silver Coin highlights this prehistoric fish’s predatory nature. As a carnivore, it feasted on other fish, as well as smaller placoderms and even members of its own species, due to its powerful jaws and razor-sharp teeth. Inscriptions on this field read PREHISTORIC LIFE, DUNKLEOSTEUS, 380-360 MIO YEARS BC, and 2023.


Fossils of Dunkleosteus have been found in many parts of the world, including North America, Europe, and Australia. These fossils have provided valuable insights into the anatomy and behavior of this ancient fish, and have helped scientists to reconstruct the ecosystems of the Devonian period.


2023 Congo Dunkleosteus 1 oz Silver Coins are available here with individual protective capsules. These coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
