Striking Lioness Design
Rim inscriptions encircle a map of Africa on the obverse. The country that issued the coin, Chad, is recessed, making it easily distinguishable from the rest of the continent. The inscriptions include the name of the issuing nation in French, "REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD," as well as basic information about the coin, which reads, "500 FRANCS CFA 2017 1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER."
The name of the coin, "AFRICAN LION," is inscribed on the right side of the reverse. The image is that of a lioness prowling the African plains. She approaches the holder, looking directly into their eyes as she prepares to pounce.
Nearly Flawless Mint State 69 First Strike
Because they received it within thirty days of its initial release, the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) certified this coin as a First Strike. They also graded it Mint State 69, which indicates that it has no more than two minuscule flaws.
