The rich and powerful symbolism of Chinese myth and legend is a perennial subject for bullion collectibles from all over the globe. Particularly popular are the various mythical animals and supernatural spirits of that tradition, with two of the most famous being known in the West as the Dragon and the Phoenix. Each half of this pair is identified with one half of the primordial duality of the Yin-Yang, the opposed but complementary forces that work together in multiple different ways to create and drive the universe. They’re celebrated by the Republic of Chad with an extraordinary pure silver coin that features a unique interlocking design of two shaped pieces that form a whole: the 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix 4.25 oz Silver Coin.
The 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix Silver Coin is a pair of shaped Yin and Yang components that link together into a single coin. The antique finish brings out the details of ultra-high-relief engravings, and an unusually substantial feel is made possible by the Bi-Metal Reverse minting technique that layers copper atop pure silver. Each coin set ships in an attractive presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse side’s Yin and Yang halves each feature Chad’s official coat of arms accompanied by the inscriptions “REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD,” “5000 FRANCS CFA,” and “2023.”
The reverse side features an Auspicious Beast on each of its component halves. The dynamically coiling Dragon occupies the Yang half, while the spectacular Phoenix takes flight on the Yin half.
The Republic of Chad has a years-long track record of releasing visually dazzling tributes to various aspects of Chinese tradition. This collectible’s combination of innovative design, fine workmanship, and cutting-edge minting technology is perhaps one of its most striking offerings to date, with intricate engraved details offset perfectly by its high-quality antiqued finish. The Azure Dragon of the East and the Vermilion Bird of the South — the Dragon and the Phoenix respectively — are rendered with vivid authenticity, bringing out a dynamic but harmonious interaction that represents auspicious omens for happy marriages and homes.
