Gold Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from Congo, Democratic Republic of the (issued 2020 - )
Coin TypeGold Five Ounces (5 oz)

The Democratic Republic of the Congo normally uses banknotes for circulation, and does not issue coins in the Congolese Franc currency. However, the country has authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction.

Most of them are in popular international sizes, including the large five troy ounces of gold (5 oz) format. They are considered "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices higher than their bullion value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at investors in precious metals.

Obverse

On a ribbon below, the national motto JUSTICE PAIX TRAVAIL (from French: Justice, Peace, Work).

Below the Coat of Arms, in small letters the precious metal of the coin: 5 oz Au 999.9 (five troy ounces of 99.99% gold; Au is abbreviated from Aurum, the Latin word for gold).

Around above, the name of the country: REPUBLIQUE DEMOCATIQUE DU CONGO.
