RCS Binge - Part 6 - 2017 1 oz Congo Silver Silverback Gorilla

Breaking this down - This started before Christmas, and went on a for a big

Well if you know Rays sales, when one pops up, there is good potential for a 2nd or 3rd. So I usually take what I can, pay up, and then tell him to hold shipping for a few days. This paid off and I was able to add on a few more pieces! I am making this a multi part event. Who doesn't love a good silver soap opera!

I struggled with the lighting on this one!! I feel like it was almost too damn shiny, blasphemy I know! The revers is almost bleached out. Good thing it is pretty boring. I managed to get two decent shots of the big fella! This is great add, especially at RCS prices and already in a air-tite. Whats not to love.

It is a nice one for sure! I actually like the way the ape looks, too often I think they animals come across really weird for some reason.

I like that coin series; the gorilla is really cool :D Thought about buying that one myself.
