The model used is Native silver from the Imiter Mine, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco. The size of the specimen is quite big: 41×30×21 mm (24 gr.)

The apes are popular amongst the NFT community, and with the Reddit movement the apes also became a symbol for physical silver stackers. Amongst the silver stackers, the Silverback Gorilla is of course popular.

And if I align the silver specimen at the right angle, it reminds me of a happy dancing Silverback Gorilla.


For years I have followed the physical silver market, and I will write a blog post for those who are interested. In a way, cryptos and silver share a common enemy, the rigged fiat system. I think it is extra cool to introduce this NFT, as it in many ways is a symbol of the riot against the corrupt system, combining real silver and Ape art, into an NFT. So for me, this NFT is not just a silver monkey, it is a symbol of what I believe in.

Did you know that silver is mined at a rate 1:8 to gold (maybe even lower), but that the price ratio is 1:78 due to manipulation of the silver paper market? However, in the silver mineral collector market, the prices for native silver specimens are much higher, reflecting silvers scarcity.

I introduce it on the 1st of January 2022, for best wishes for the new year to all in the crypto community. 

It is a relatively low price, hoping this one will break the ice for my first selling NFTs for the early birds who believe in me.

Video of the specimen used for the NFT.

It normally doesn't look like a monkey, unless you align the angle.
