Congo DR Shoebill

The Shoebill silver coin series authorized by the Congo Democratic Republic was first issued in 2021. The series focuses on the Shoebill stork, a bird native to eastern central Africa. Scottsdale Mint has been contracted to produce the series and each coin in the series has a limited mintage with the design changing each year. The worldwide mintage limit for these coins ranges from 25,000 to 50,0000.

The series is minted by Scottsdale Mint using 1 troy ounce of .999 silver. In addition to this, each coin will come individually encapsulated in a hard plastic, protective case. The coin is backed by the Congolese government, with a face value of 1000 francs.
