Koi and Dragons
2 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 10000 Francs CFA
The Koi and Dragons are struck in high relief as the fire and water element is represented in detailed engravings in the piece. The art style on the reverse that gave rise to this design is bonded to the idea of the harmony that is possible between a person’s spiritual and physical life. The obverse of the piece is inspired by the Yin and the Yang of life and the quality of the engravings and the various depths that have been crafted in the image give it a sense of movement, purpose, and life. This is a piece that shows both attention to detail and whimsy that are carefully offset by the finish with antiqued Silver. The obverse features the legal tender, the Coat of Arms du Tchad.
A new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Plus” was applied to give this piece an impressive size and weight. At 80mm in diameter, it is double the size of a regular 2 oz collectible, made possible by combining 11.5 oz of copper embodied within two layers of 999 pure silver totaling 2 oz, to deliver a super ultra-high relief topped with enamel coloring and antiqued silver finishing. This is a limited edition of 500 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
