Quetzalcoatl

10 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2024 50000 Francs CFA

Quetzalcoatl (pronounced Ket-zal-ko’-wat) was the Aztec version of the feathered Serpent god that permeated Mesoamerican mythologies. Though he originated as a vegetation god, Quetzalcoatl’s role in the Aztec mythos expanded over time.

By the time the Spanish arrived in the New World, Quetzalcoatl was regarded as the god of wind, patron of priests, and inventor of calendars and books. He was also occasionally used as a symbol of death and resurrection.

Quetzalcoatl’s name, which means “Feathered Serpent,” was derived from the Nahuatl words for the quetzal bird and “coatl,” meaning serpent. Unlike the newer gods of the Aztec pantheon, Quetzalcoatl shared his namesake with the feathered serpent deities of the K’iche’ Maya and the Yucatec Maya. The name of the K’iche’ Maya deity Q’uq’umatz meant “Quetzal Serpent” while the Yucatec Maya god Kukulkan translated to the less specific “Feathered Serpent.’

Sized at 80mm diameter, this 10 oz 999 Pure Silver coin is struck concaved in ultra-high relief, complemented with enamel coloring and antiqued silver finishing that accentuates the lifelikeness of Ares. This is a limited edition of 111 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
