Silver Ounce 2022 Shoebill Stork, Coin from Congo, Democratic Republic of the
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Shoebill Stork

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 is the second coin by the Scottsdale Mint featuring the Shoebill Stork.

The mint says about it:
Whether you’re a collector that focuses on coinage that depicts birds, wildlife in general, or countries from across the globe, this latest coin release, with a low world-wide mintage of only 20,000 has what you’re looking for. 

The Shoebill Stork, also known as the “King of the Swamps”, is a large bird native to the wetlands of East Africa. With a wingspan of up to 8 feet and a height of 5 feet, it is an impressive and imposing sight. But it is the bird’s unique and distinct appearance that truly sets it apart. Its large, hooked beak and flat, shoe-shaped head give it a prehistoric look, as if it has been plucked straight out of the Jurassic era. 

Despite its formidable appearance, the Shoebill Stork is a solitary and elusive creature, making it a rare and highly sought-after sighting for birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts. It is also a formidable hunter, using its massive beak to spear fish and other prey in the murky waters of its habitat. But its numbers are dwindling due to habitat loss and hunting, making conservation efforts vital to the survival of this magnificent and mysterious bird.
