Why purchase this 1 oz. Silver 2018 5,000 Francs Republic of Chad African Lion?

This 2018 5,000 Francs 1 oz. Silver Republic of Chad African Lion continues a series that started in 2015. While other countries issued the 2015 and 2016 editions, this is the second consecutive year in which the coin was issued by Chad. 50,000 pieces were issued, with each one being struck at Sunshine Minting from .999 fine silver.

Powerful Lion Design

While most coins bear obverse images that represent the issuing country, this one represents the entire continent of Africa. A large, frosted map is at the center of this face. The exception is that Chad itself is mirrored. The country's official name, "REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD," arches over the map, while other inscriptions on this face provide additional information, including its weight and purity.

On the reverse is an adult male lion. It looks to the left side of the coin bearing a regal countenance, and its mane, like its face, is executed in exceptional detail. "AFRICAN LION," the name of the series, is inscribed on the rim to the left.

Impeccable MS70 FS

Professional Coin Grading Service's (PCGS) experts found not a single imperfection on this coin, so they awarded it their highest grade, Mint State 70 (MS70). PCGS also certified it as a First Strike, thus indicating that it was received for grading within 30 days of its release from the Mint.
