Democratic Republic of Congo - 1965 10 Franc "Lion"

THE 10 Franc Lion was Independent Congo's first circulation coin. Minted in aluminum and packaged for shipment in large plastic bags, many of the coins display bag marks, scratches and other surface damage. As a result, coins with clean "ding" free surfaces are far and few between. Three variants can be easily identified: THICK PAIX, FULL PAIX and THIN PAIX. Additionally, many coins with various strike anomalies can be found as well: broadstruck/off center strikes, strike-throughs, die-breaks, etc. The variants and anomalies make this coin a delight to collect!

Democratic Republic of Congo-1965 Gold Anniversary Set

THE Congo's 1965 Gold 5-piece proof set, exists in two versions. The TYPE 1 set, anchored by the 100 Franc coin with the TYPE 1 reverse [100 Fr (abbreviated)] was issued in packaging bearing French text. The TYPE 2 proof set was issued in a different style of packaging with text in English. The reverse of the TYPE 2 100 Franc coin displays "Franc" spelled out and is in a different position than the denomination placement on the TYPE 1 coin. The other 4 coins in both the TYPE 1 and TYPE 2 proof sets are identical {KM#2-5]. While It is challenging to find either proof set in original packaging, the TYPE 1 set is particularly elusive. Many of these sets have been broken out into single coins and it is most common to find them in that manner in the marketplace. Gold Content:100Frs(.9334oz.), 50Frs(.4667 oz.), 25Frs(.2333 oz.), 20Frs(.1867 oz.), 10Frs(.9000 oz.).
