A coordinate covalent bond is different from a covalent bond, because instead of both atoms each sharing one electron to form a bond, there is only one atom that donates two of its electrons to form a bond. Coordinate covalent bonds do not just occur in Lewis acids and bases, and could also be found in metal ligands. For example, NH3 + Ag+ forms the bond [Ag-NH3]+, where the Nitrogen's 2 lone electrons are utilized to form a coordinate covalent bond with the Silver ion.
