One of the fundamental pillars of traditional Chinese thought is the play of opposing but complementary forces through which the universe created itself, normally glossed in the West as “female” and “male” but actually representing a host of dual relationships that worked in harmonious opposition to make life possible. This Yin and Yang tradition is paid tribute by the Republic of Chad with a coin that sports a unique interlocking design of two shaped pieces that come together to form a whole, with an antique finish to add refinement and accentuate detail on its sculpted Dragon and Phoenix subjects. The 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix 2-Coin Set is available from JM Bullion.

The Four Auspicious Beasts of Chinese myth symbolize seasons, elements, and virtuous human traits, and two of the most famed are the Azure Dragon of the East and the Vermilion Bird of the South, known to the West as the Dragon and the Phoenix. Tied to the primal forces of Yang and Yin, they represent authority and grace respectively, and when joined together, their union blesses households and marriages.
The 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix Coin is minted with a layer of copper atop a base layer of silver through advanced Bi-Metal Reverse technology. Featuring high-relief engravings, it comes in a presentation case with an individual Certificate of Authenticity, fully insured in transit by JM Bullion.

Each shaped half of the reverse side features an Auspicious Beast: the serpentine coiling Dragon appears on the Yang half, while a dazzling Phoenix appears in mid-flight on the Yin half.
