Description

Congo – 100 Francs – 1965 – 5 years of independence NGC PF68

This is a gold coin issued to celebrate 5 years of independence of the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1965. The mint quality is proof and the mintage at the time was only 3,000 copies. According to sources, however, about 2,100 of these have already been melted down again, so that only about 900 of these gold coins are still in collections worldwide.

What makes this specimen very special is that it is certified by NGC with the grade PF68. With this high grade, this is also a top pop, meaning as of today there is no better rated edition at the NGC.
