Eagerly anticipated by collectors, the 2017 1oz Congo Silverback Gorilla silver coin is the third in a popular series by the Scottsdale Mint. The limited-edition series bears the crest of the Republic of Congo and features an annually changing Silverback Gorilla design. Very low mintages add to the Silverback Gorilla's considerable appeal and each of these 2017 proof-like coins contains one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. An excellent choice for those who want to guard against inflation as well as a striking collectible.
The Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla series was launched in 2015 and was an immediate success. The inaugural coin had a mintage of just 50,000 and only 75,000 1oz Silverback Gorilla coins were issued in 2016. Only 75,000 of these superb 2017 silver coins will be issued and demand will be high.

For 2017, the Scottsdale Mint has chosen to depict an adult Eastern Lowland Silverback Gorilla, fangs bared. Relatively shy and not naturally aggressive, a fully-grown alpha Silverback only shows his fangs and beats his chest to warn off intruders or when he feels threatened. Eastern Lowland Gorillas inhabit the Congolese forests and marshes close to the Rwandan border. The largest of the four subspecies of eastern gorilla, the eastern lowland male has a jet-black coat and, like all gorillas, his back changes to silver as he matures. Like the 2017 1oz Congo Silverback Gorilla coin, the species is rare – only around 3,800 remain in the wild. CoinInvest is delighted to add the 2017 1oz Congo Silverback Gorilla to its extensive catalogue of gold and silver coins.
