CoinSilver Ounce 2002 Discus Thrower

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 standard bullion sizes, including one ounce of silver - such as this coin.

This coin commemorates the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.
