Saladin – Righteousness of the Faith, was the Sultan of Egypt and one of the most famous Muslim heroes. Saladin’s greatest triumph over the European Crusaders came at the Battle of Hattin in 1187, which paved the way for Islamic re-conquest of Jerusalem and other Holy Land cities in the Near East.

Saladin’s reputation for generosity, religiosity, and commitment to the higher principles of holy war has been idealized by Muslim sources and by many Westerners including Dante, who placed him in the company of Hector, Aeneas, and Caesar as a “virtuous pagan.”

The 2 oz fine-silver coin is struck in high relief while being complemented with antiqued silver finishing. The collectible showcases the side-profile portrait of the Saladin in his armor against a background of the hero himself leading his army against the Crusaders. The obverse features the legal tender, the Coat of Arms du Tchad, stylized with Arabic script.
