A Silverback gorilla is the mature, experienced male leader of a group of mountain gorillas in the wild. Named for the Silver saddles across his back, the Silverback is responsible for the safety of his group. A group of gorillas, also called a “troop,” can contain from 5 to 30 gorillas. The Silverback decides where the troop travels, where it forages for food, where it will rest and where it will sleep at night.

There's barely any relief on the design so the image is real flat. Came sealed and in a capsule.

Kind of a bummer opening up 5 of these coins with 4 of them all spotted up. Beautiful coins but those spots mess it up. Oh well what can you do.

Great birthday present

By  TFaville

I found this on the APMEX site while looking for it as a birthday gift for my wife. I had been hesitant to shop at APMEX because of their higher shipping prices (I am unable to purchase $100 at a whack), but went ahead and ordered the coin to make sure I got it. While their shipping prices are high for orders under $100, you can see why in the packaging. I have yet to have bought from another vendor that ships in anything more than a padded envelope. The custom padded box was sturdy, and bordering overkill, but the effort is appreciated. The coin itself is beautiful and of the quality one would expect from Scottsdale Mint. The coin came in a capsule, well protected from damage, and is a beautiful design. My only problem is I misread my wife and bought her the 2016 coin, and she preferred the 2015 coin (the gorilla is "snarling"). That's okay, I bought her both. Still, the 2016 silverback coin is absolutely beautiful and well worth it for a collector.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

GREAT

Love the gorillas. Dealing with APMEX is always a smooth experience. My package was dropped off while it was raining, and sat outside my door for a little bit. The cardboard box was damp, but thanks to the great multiple layers of secure packaging, my silver was dry and protected. One of the many reasons I am a loyal customer!
