This year’s rendition portrays both gorillas in a front-facing relief, capturing their endearing bond. Inscriptions include 999 SILVER, ONE TROY OUNCE, and 2023.


Despite their imposing staturereaching heights of up to six feetthe silverback gorilla is renowned for its gentle and reserved nature. These herbivores predominantly consume bamboo and vegetation. Though typically peaceful, if they sense danger, they display their strength by thumping their chest as a defensive gesture. Tragically, these remarkable creatures teeter on the brink of extinction.
