Over the years, many countries around the world have issued bullion collectibles to celebrate the rich symbolism of Chinese mythology. Two of the most popular choices are the Dragon — identified with auspiciousness, authority and imperial power — and the Phoenix, representing elegance and benevolence. The Republic of Chad provides a truly exceptional combined celebration of these influential spirits and their further connection to the ancient duality of Yin and Yang with a two-piece, gold-plated silver collectible that assembles into a unified whole that presents Yin and Yang in harmony. The 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Silver Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix 2-Coin Silver Set is now available from Provident Metals.
The 2023 Antique Republic of Chad Yin Yang Dragon and Phoenix Silver Set contains a pair of shaped coins that link together to form a single round. The coins feature ultra high-relief engravings made possible by the cutting-edge Bi-Metal Reverse minting technique, which starts with a base layer of pure silver and a top layer of copper, culminating with an antique finish that brings out gorgeous details. Your coin set ships in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity, fully insured by the Provident Metals team.
The coins’ obverse sides each feature Chad’s coat of arms. These are accompanied by the inscriptions “REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD,” “5000 FRANCS CFA,” and “2023.”
The reverse sides of each coin in this set provide dazzlingly detailed portraits of a sinuous Dragon and of a Phoenix in mid-flight, with its wings and talons outstretched.
The Four Symbols of traditional Chinese cosmology, also known as the Four Supernatural Spirits and the Four Auspicious Beasts, are mythic creatures that appear in the Chinese system of constellations and are seen as guardians of the four cardinal directions. They also represent seasons, emotions, auspicious virtues, and elements, and each has its own origin myths. The East and spring are guarded by the Azure Dragon, and the South and summer are guarded by the Vermilion Bird. In Western terminology, these are simply called the Dragon and the Phoenix, who come together to present blessings for households, marriages, and fertility.
