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.
