2017 Chad 5000 Francs 1 oz. Gilt Proof Silver African Lion Design

The many African elements located on both the coin’s obverse and reverse make this coin fiercely unique. A picture of Africa serves as the prominent image on the coin’s obverse. The Republic of Chad is appropriately highlighted paying homage to the fact that this coin is backed by their government as an official legal tender. Additionally, the 2017 1 oz. Gilt Proof Silver African Lion’s obverse contains rim inscriptions, "REPUBLIQUE DU TCHAD," as well as the face value, "5000 FRANCS CFA," date, "2017," and weight and purity of the coin, "1 OZ. 999 FINE SILVER."

This coin's reverse is truly something to admire. Viewer’s eyes will immediately be drawn to the shining gilt lioness in the middle of the coin’s reverse side. Surrounded by shining silver detail, the African lioness is shown prowling through the African plane. Around her, the name of the series, “AFRICAN LION” is inscribed.
