Congo / 0 Products

Congo, officially known as the Republic of the Congo, is a country situated in Central Africa. It shares borders with Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Atlantic Ocean. The capital city is Brazzaville.

The country boasts dense rainforests, savannas, and numerous rivers, including the Congo River, one of Africa's largest and most significant waterways. The Congo Basin rainforest, covering a substantial portion of the country, is one of the world's most biodiverse regions.

With a current population of 104,265,952, Congo gained independence from France in 1960, experiencing periods of political instability and civil conflict since then. Nevertheless, Congo possesses abundant natural resources, including oil, timber, and minerals, contributing to its economy.

Congo's population is diverse, comprising various ethnic groups and languages, with French being the official language, inherited from its colonial past.

The country faces developmental challenges, including poverty, inadequate infrastructure, and healthcare issues. However, ongoing efforts aim to promote economic growth, stability, and environmental conservation in its ecologically significant regions.

The currency of the Republic of the Congo is the Central African CFA franc (XAF), shared by several countries in Central Africa. Issued by the Banque des États de l'Afrique Centrale (BEAC), the CFA franc is pegged to the euro at a fixed exchange rate.

Historically, coinage in Congo includes holed copper coins introduced in 1887, followed by cupro-nickel coins in 1906. Coin production ceased during Belgian Congo's rule but resumed in 1936. Various denominations and compositions were introduced over the years, including brass and aluminum coins, reflecting changes in economic and political contexts. Today, the Republic of the Congo primarily uses coins denominated in the Central African CFA franc, with various denominations featuring designs reflecting the region's culture and heritage.

The coins currently in circulation are denominated in the Central African CFA franc (XAF) and typically include denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 500 francs. While coins of higher denominations like 100 and 500 francs exist, they may not be as commonly encountered in circulation as the lower denominations.
