Gold Half Gram (0.5 g), Coin Type from Congo, Democratic Republic of the (issued 2020 - )
Coin TypeGold Half Gram (0.5 g)

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 half gram of gold mini-coin 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.
