Then you realize, he is studying you, as his eyes are fixed on yours. The background is sparse, but gives hint of the jungle that is his home.
- 2017 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla
This 2017 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla BU (Proof-like) coin is the third of series release by the U.S. based Scottsdale Mint. The obverse design this year returns to the theme that launched the series in 2015. Even more fearful than the inaugural year, the beast’s fierceness is vividly displayed. A head and shoulder scene shows this silverback gorilla with head back, chest fully expanded, and his massive jaws spread wide open. You can almost hear the deep, deafening growl reverberating through the dense jungle, which spreads behind him.
- 2018 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla
This 2018 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Gorilla BU (Proof-like) coin is a magnificent fourth Scottsdale Mint release of the Silverback Gorilla series. The large, mature male silverback featured on the coin’s obverse is truly astounding! Two of the three previous releases in the series have focused on the gorilla’s ability to demonstrate intense ferociousness in the face of imminent danger.
This fourth design depicts the silverback in somewhat of a quiet, thoughtful state. In each separate troop of gorillas, a single mature silverback assumes sole leadership and defends the group. When defense is necessary, the silverback throws all 4-foot, 400 pounds of his fierceness into the situation. Otherwise, he is generally docile in everyday activities.
The silverback is displayed head and shoulders, looking in your general direction as though carefully studying the situation. He obviously doesn’t sense danger, or his calm appearance would show signs of alert and concern. Every detail of his expression is simply exquisite!
- 2019 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla
Once again Scottsdale Mint has skillfully unveiled another unique glimpse into this amazing animal with this fifth annual release. This 2019 Silver 1 oz Republic of Congo Gorilla BU (Proof-like) coin design depicts the silverback from a different vantage. Something has arrested his immediate attention. He quickly looks up with a fierce growl! His keen eyes are fixed on the danger that has revealed itself crouching on a high limb above him. Although we cannot see what has caused this massive silverback to respond with this intense display, he is clearly ready to stand and defend himself and his troop.
This amazing close-up view of the gorilla’s massive head and upper torso entirely fills the center field of the coin. The finest details of his expression are revealed. It seems to show the moment his surprise sparked the intense display power in his growl. This is truly an amazing scene!
This BOLD Set: Republic of Congo Gorilla (2015-2019) is definitely one you will proudly display!
