New Releases TWC COINS


Located in Central Africa, the Republic of the Congo is often referred to as Congo-Brazzaville to distinguish it from its eastern neighbour, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (known as Congo-Kinshasa). The country is sparsely inhabited with more than half of its population living in the cities, the forests covering around 65% of its land area and being home to rich diversity of wildlife. Apart from oil, the country has large mineral, forest and natural gas resources.

Commemorative coins have been issued by the Republic of the Congo since 1984. Following the wildlife theme, among the most popular coin series are the Magnificent Big Cats, the Magnificent Reptiles and the stunning Nature’s Eyes coins.
