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.

Great birthday present

By  TFaville

from Portland, OR

5.0

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.

GREAT

By  Silver Stacker

from Grand Rapids MI

5.0

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!

Harambe

By  Remember Him

from Chandler, AZ

5.0

This 2016 Silverback silver round designed in the likeness of the great Harambe is the perfect way to both show your respects to a young, valiant silverback who was taken from us before his time and to also stack some silver. Harambe is immortalized in this round and its value can only increase as his fame grows.

As a coin collector and an animal lover, this is a must-have coin simply for its value , design and beauty. The precise, expertise in strike gives it a distinct look of quality and the image of a HUGE gorilla is captivating. The content of silver makes it a "can't lose" purchase. Hollis Biddle

By  Mr. G.

This Silverback Gorilla coin is an outstanding piece produced by Scottsdale Mint. The prooflike finish is amazing and is well complimented by the great job Scottsdale did with the levels of frosting used to detail the Silverback Gorilla's chest and fur. I would highly recommend the 2016 Republic of Congo Silverback Gorilla coin.
