This emblem was adopted in 1970 and features a shield being propped up by a lion and a goat. Below the shield is the Chad motto and above it is a rising sun.

The reverse face of 2022 Antique Republic of Chad 2 oz Silver Coins contains a high-relief replication of Discobolus. Here we see a professional athlete participating in one of the oldest Olympic sports, the discus throw. Like the original by Myron, the athlete is rendered in an almost cinematic fashion, as if they will complete the discus throw before our very eyes.
Discobolus was created during the height of the Classical period in Greece. This was a time of unprecedented flourishing, particularly in Athens. Classical Greece gave us the Parthenon, the tragedies of Aeschylus, the philosophy of Socrates, and the historical works of Herodotus. It also gave us Myron, who created both Discobolus as well as the famous statues of Athena and Marsyas. The classical period is generally dated from 510 to 323 BC.
