100 g Republic of Congo Water Buffalo 2017
This 2017 Silver Water Buffalo coin features a stunning concave design, with a crisp, reeded edge. Produced by the U.S. based Scottsdale Mint, in cooperation with the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo, this coin's design is quite striking. The obverse displays the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Coat of Arms, superimposed over a pattern of smooth river rocks. Also included are the inscriptions, "Republique Democratique Du Congo," and the face value, "50 Francs CFA."
The reverse design is refreshingly unique, featuring a large, finely detailed image of a water buffalo's head. It is positioned to show only the right half of his head, which fills the greater part of the coin's field. The animal is facing forward, with his gaze set directly upon you. In the distance, a sihoulette of another water buffalo stands at the horizon. Inscriptions include "100 Grams, .999 Silver" resting in the space above the buffalo's horn. Encircling the bottom is inscribed, "Water Buffalo." The overall effect of the entire coin's design is really remarkable!
