Known in the West as the Dragon and the Phoenix — each identified with one half of the dualistic Yin-Yang system at the heart of much of traditional Chinese thought — the stars of this extraordinary gilded coin are drawn from the ranks of Four Auspicious Beasts dating back to remote antiquity. Based on constellations that guard the four cardinal directions, they represent specific seasons, elements, and virtues. In China, they are the Azure Dragon and the Vermilion Bird, and their harmonious unity brings blessings for love and marriage.
The 2023 Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix Set presents shaped components that join into a single coin with high-relief engravings. Minted with an innovative Bi-Metal Reverse technique, it features a layer of copper over a full ounce of pure silver to achieve a strikingly substantial feel. Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, it ships fully insured from JM Bullion in an attractive presentation case.
The obverse side of the coins features Chad’s coat of arms on either half of a Yin-Yang symbol, along with the inscriptions “REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD,” “5000 FRANCS CFA,” and “2023.”
On the reverse, the sinuously flowing form of a Dragon is paired with a Phoenix captured in mid-flight. The Phoenix is portrayed in a dynamic pose with wings and talons outstretched, and both figures are rendered in extraordinary detail.
